Opera in the earlier years

This post is partly due to Victor's remarks on his observation of street opera in his neighbourhood. The picture below of a street opera is in much earlier time - I think before the 50s.

Frannxis, thanks for answering my "request". Your photos really brought back those old memories for me. I can see those wooden boxes and the people were carrying waxed paper umbrellas!
