History

In its heyday, Uncle Tom's Cabin offered dancing to its own orchestra, refreshments, and American Portraits 'taken and finished while you wait'. On the roof are three wooden figures representing Uncle Tom, Eva and Topsy. Shortly after this picture was taken in 1906, cliff erosion caused a part of the building to collapse; the remainder was demolished in 1907.
