“We publish herewith a cut of the Gayety Theater, Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., of which Mr. F. D. Beardsley is the manager. The house has a seating capacity of 300 persons and is one of the Soo Amusement Company’s theaters.

The Indians standing in front of the theater are genuine, full-blooded Chippewas. Some of the Chippewas are educated Indians and they are good patrons of picture theaters.”
