Vintage Blues Concert Poster – Handy’s Jazz Band (W.C. Handy)

I can really use some help on this one… can anybody accurately guess what year this gem is from? It dates out to 1920, 1926, 1937, 1943 or 1948, but $2.00 for “gentlemen” would be a very high admission price for those earlier years. Tough to say; feel free to weigh in. Heck I guess it could’ve even been 1954, but Handy was 80 years old by then. Anyway, great-looking vintage poster for the blues legend, and truly an intriguing collector’s item.
