Description

This is a photograph showing the left backboard graffiti left by many participants of productions held on the stage of Dixfeld's Tuscan Opera House. Most evident is the graffiti from the 1950s and 60s school plays.

The stage was in use, for a variety of purposes, from its construction in 1891 until the 1970s when it was sold by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) Tuscan Lodge #22 for commercial purposes. In 2013, the building is still standing but is unused.
