A different and earlier Orpheum Theatre, this one on the east side of Thrid Avenue between Jefferson and James Streets, where the City-County Building was raised in 1914 (I believe). The theatre had to wait on the destruction by fire of the Yesler Mansion that stood on this block from the mid 1880s untlll 1901 when it held the local library and when up in flames with all its books except those that were checked out.
