Click on an image to enlarge
Pictured, you see the vivid cover of a 32 page, 9" by 7" program for the musical "This Is The Army". It was put on at the Mastbaum Theater in Philadelphia by military personnel in 1942 -- a time when morale needed a boost everywhere. Inside are guides to the players, musicians and to the theater. There are also copious ads -- some of which express confidence in ultimate victory. Others just offer goods and services at shockingly low prices by todays standards. It’s a hoot to read the ads! A few of the ads even apologize that the business owners are unable to personally attend the show, but they are off fighting or training for the fight!! Great, huh? There are also some wonderful anti-Hitler, Tojo and Mussolini cartoon drawings (pen & ink only) on some of the pages where advertising space couldn’t be sold. All the pages are present and in FINE condition. Some have come loose from the staple binding. Best part about the program? It would frame up brilliantly and be a real eye-catcher.
