I have always been partial to the linen type postcards of the 1940's. Here are a few of my favorites, published by the Longshaw Card Company, from my collection. They happen to be from the year I was born. How time fly's when your having fun!
The Earl Carroll Theatre - Seats reserved in advance $2.50 - A Gay Night Spot of Hollywood, California.
Editors Note: The Earl Carroll Theatre was built in 1938. After changing hands it eventually became the "Hullabaloo" Rock and Roll club, capitalizing on the popularity of the television variety show Hullabaloo. It then became the "Aquarius Theatre" in the late 1960s and was used as a venue for the long running musical Hair and made famous as the place where The Doors performed on July 21, 1969. - LA WOMAN ROCKS !!! -
