(Below) The Vogue Theatre in Indianapolis, IN was built by Carl Niesse and opened in 1938 as a first run theatre. In 1977 the Vogue was turned into a nightclub, which is still in operation. We are currently renovating the facade back to the original 1938 terra cotta.  It had been covered in 1960 with ceramic coated metal.  The black and white was taken in 1948, and the color photos are the current clubs look. More info can be found at the website for the Vogue Nightclub. Many thanks to Steven Ross, owner of the Vogue Theatre, for photos and info. 11-07
