The Marks Rothenberg store we all patronized was a five story building and, by small town standards, huge, consuming the entire length of 22nd Avenue between 5th and 6th Streets. We all shopped the large first floor sales area(s). Click on for larger pictures.

But on the 2nd floor and above was this! The fabled Grand Opera House which has now been restored to its previous grandeur. The space was said to be used for storage and warehousing in our youth.
