For 20 years after the Second World War the place to dance and be entertained in the summer was Dunn's Pavilion in Bala, in Muskoka, Ontario. World class entertainment such as The Glenn Miller Band, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Count Basie graced the stage at Dunn's.
Silk screen posters measuring 14"x22" were placed in strategic resorts, restaurants and telephone poles to advertise these dances. This poster is from the Sutton family who were the original owners of the Bala Bay Inn where this poster was displayed. It has never left the Sutton family. This is one of a set of four professionally framed and mounted.
