My great grandfather, Robert John Johnson, was killed while working on a scaffold for this building back in 1916. His death certificate is marked “accidentally” leaving me to question if this was perhaps a homicide. Any information is appreciated.

Dates incorrect (that’s a different Globe Theatre). This one was still going in 1969 and likely an African American Theatre. Converted to retail by 1973.
