Photograph of a Central City Opera House Bell Ringer. He is standing in the middle of unpaved Eureka Street with his back toward the Opera House. He is dressed completely in a black frock coat with satin lapels, black trousers, and black, leather knee-length boots. He is holding in his right hand above his head a brass bell attached to a black, wooden handle. Behind him is the granite facade of the Opera House with its rounded entrances. An iron light fixture hangs from the wall to the right entrance above a billboard. People, mostly women, stand on the sidewalk along the front of the Opera House.
