Duke Ellington Window Card 1930s w/ His Famous Orchestra

Early 20th-century concert posters simply don’t get any better than this… a gorgeous Duke Ellington 1934 tour poster from Scranton, PA. Duke was only 35 years old, but his orchestra was already considered “famous.” Admission was only $1.00 to see a true musical genius at the peak of his career. And the artistic rendering of Duke’s smiling face against the blue & white backdrop is nothing short of a masterpiece. Enthusiastically discussed by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (phone 805-540-0020, email pete@postercentral.com).
