This single-fold, cardboard program, or advertising card, for an appearance by Lena Horne at the Town Casino in Buffalo, New York in 1947 evokes a time of glamor, excitement and seemingly unlimited promise following WWII. The Town Casino was billed as “the largest nightclub between Chicago and New York City.” Its big wraparound marquee advertised three nightly shows at 7:30 and 10:30 p.m., and 1:30 a.m. Dinner was served from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Dancing and a show were included. This program advertises Lena Horne, "Glamorous Hollywood Singing Star," on June 18 along with an upcoming appearance by Bobby Breen. The card also lists the secondary cast and lists stars who have appeared, including Milton Berle, the Mills Brothers, Mildred Bailey and many others. The card was designed to be mailed and has a photo of the main dining room. It is in excellent condition with light aging and a few small stains. It is a small memento of another time with the great Lena Horne as the featured performer. ; B&W Photographs; 8vo
