* There was a third Globe Theatre at 692 Washington Street built in 1903 (Arthur H. Vina, architect), extant
SW corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Dartmouth Street, Boston, MA
Extant as an office and condominium complex
* In terms of loss of life, the Vendome fire is the worst fire-fighting disaster in Boston history. Nine fire-fighters died when a 40-by-45 foot section of wall collapsed burying a ladder truck (Ladder 15) and seventeen firefighters beneath a two-story pile of debris.
Letter sent from Boston by Wilde to his manager, Col. W. F. Morse:
“Mr. Moore paid only 250 dollars - and no expenses at all.”
