This week’s Tour Through Time takes a look at then and now images of 54 W. Main St. in Mechanicsburg
The then image shows a line in front of what was once the Valle Theatre in the 1950s. The theatre opened in 1948 and closed in 1978.
The now image shows the changes over the years.
Tour Through Time will run Saturdays in the Sentinel as a joint project with the Cumberland County Historical Society. Sentinel photographers will work with staff at the Historical Society each week to offer a look at Carlisle and the surrounding area through the years.
Please contact the Cumberland County Historical Society at 717-249-7610 with any information pertaining to these images. Please send future ideas or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
