Danny Brown's Scrapbooks

Jewel Box Club, Tampa

1942-1944, Part 2

Below, one of the handfull of snapshots in the album, which appears to be of orchestra leader Manny Gates, as seen in the above ad

In the scrapbook on the next page was the same ad as above but with tracing paper taped
over it. Looks like Danny or Don were contemplating a Jewel Box Revue ad with that design.

...makes you wonder what "The Gayest Show in Town" meant in 1943

...and, I tried to google Tookie Hunter, and could find no photos, so this one above
must be rare. She was in a couple Broadway shows, but I know of no recordings.
