A Photographic Gallery or Photo Gallery opened at Olentangy Park in 1906. It was "equipped for day and night work."[1] The attraction only lasted a year, burning down in a fire that started in the motion picture building. The one-story frame was "rendered useless," and the fire department estimated the damage to the gallery at $200 ($6,304 in 2022).[2]
