George Field

George Field is located at 1801 North 5t Street. I cannot find an exact date for when this stadium was built, but the front gates say, “Class of 1914”. One can assume it was around then. For football games It was replaced by the newer stadium right behind the school for  in 1938. Though it is still used for baseball games, from little league to Reading High Games. Anyone have more information on the history of George Field?

A 1938 article about it being replaced by a newer field behind the the High School:

Ritz Theatre

The Ritz Theatre was located at 819 Penn Street, across from the Kissinger-Farmer’s Market. It was originally called the Crescent Theatre when it opened:

The Crescent Theatre was opened in 1910. In 1913 it was renamed Princess Theatre. It was re-named Arcadia Theatre in 1928, taking the name of the Arcadia Theatre which had burnt down that year. Closed for several years in the 1930’s, it was reopened as the Ritz Theatre in 1941. By 1950, it was operated by the Fabian Theaters chain. It was demolished in the 1950’s. –Cinema Treasures

A 1928 Reading Eagle article:

The Ritz Theatre was torn down in 1950s to make room for a parking lot.
