An extravaganza of a souvenir book! Not only is it oversized at 9"x12" and filled with glorious stills from production numbers, but it also has a fold-out at the back which has four perforated postcards. Amazing that they're still intact, but they are. The program is marred only by spots of ege wear to the black cover and a small flat crease to the lower front corner. Very nice and a souvenir of the FIRST stage production ever. View more info

Price: $15.00

Publisher: The Gruen Watch Co.: 1940

Seller ID: 0102


Wow -- what a graphic! I'd have picked it up just for that, but it's also a souvenir from the 1940 World's Fair. Billy Rose's Aquacade was a glamorous show featuring gorgeous people, both men and women -- sort of a Ziegfield follies in water, though he referred to it as a water ballet. The funny part is that Rose endorsed his ads. The one I like best says (in Rose's own words), "Just taste one -- you'll see why I'm proud to have SPAMWICHES served at the Aquacade." Now THAT's what you'd call glam for sure! :-) Measuras 9"x12" and has 32 pages and three full page color ads -- Coke, Pabst ... View more info

Publisher: New York, St. Gregory Musical society Inc.: 1919

Seller ID: 0143

Condition: Very Good


This two-piece souvenir of a 1919 evening of liturgical music marks the first time in history that the choirs from the Roman Basilicas and the Vatican performed outside of Rome. The program does not indicate the city directly, but an Ohio reference on back cover and the fact that the location was St. Clair Avenue leads us to believe it had to have been Cleveland. The most important piece, however, is the larger brochure which measures 8x10" and is profusely illustrated and filled with information about the choirs and their history. Although unpaginated, we counted 24. Cover, though simple, is ... View more info

Beautiful card in almost perfect condition. No wear and no use. The only fault is a haze of foxing to reverse side caused by having been laid into a postcard album made of high acid paper. Everyone is dressed up for a day at the amusement park -- even the restaurants, or dinigng rooms as they were called, exude a bit of elegance. Card will arrive in plastic sleeve. View more info

Surprisingly scarce program published in honor of the 25th Independence Day Dance hosted by the North American Association of Venezuela.

Others inside include Ponds, Sears, Chevrolet, Elizabeth Arden and many more. The program is large at 9"x12" and has much information about the event itself, the liberation of Venezuela, and the ties that bind Venezuela to the United States. Illustrated with black and white photographs. The program is... View more info
