The photo on this web page shows damage suffered by the Jewel Theatre in The April 19. 1947, Texas City disaster.

The web site of the antique shop that now occupies the building says that it was built in 1948, but I’d guess that parts of the original structure were saved. I’m sure that the auditorium side wall and roof had to be rebuilt, but the front of the theater is pretty much the same as it was before.

Texas City, by Albert Mitchell, says that the Jewel was in operation by 1915.
