Rare Billy Rose’s Diamond Horseshoe 1940's menu

What a wonderful piece of history and memorabilia from a gentleman who really made his mark in the music and theatre world. In 1938, Billy Rose’s Diamond Horseshoe, a nightclub in New York City's Times Square opened in the basement of the Paramount Hotel. It initially opened with a version of his Fort Worth show w he constructed the huge elaborate dinner theatre Casa Mañana which featured stripper Sally Rand and the world's largest revolving stage. From 1949 until 1955, Rose was the owner/operator of the Ziegfeld Theatre. He is best known as the credited writer or co-writer of the lyrics to "Me and My Shadow" This Menu is absolutely DELIGHTFUL with twists of comical drawings as well as the way the menu is written. This seems to be one of the first “Green” clubs with a farm bought specifically for the purpose of brining fresh food to its establishment. This was done in anticipation of the governments Food Conservation Program. This large menu has a beautiful red head on the cover who looks like she was painted in the impressionist style of Monet. Inside the t is one page dedicated to drinks with prices as low as 80 cents and live main lobster dinners for $4.95. This measures 17 ½” x 11” when closed. Made of a sturdy paper it is quite beautiful piece of history~!.Gentle wear. Will be shipped in a hard cardboard casing for protection. And now for the tedious part that you probably already know: Please remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm. All items are sold as is and as found (used and probably vintage) Since this is Irreplaceable t can be no returns on this sale.. Please use photos to make your decisions. My definition of Vintage is a style or method formerly in vogue
