The legendary Danceland poster collection 1956-1967

"The Danceland Ballroom was built in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1927. After a change in ownership in 1957, they began booking rock and roll acts. They continued until the ballroom was torn down in 1969.
The ballroom was located on the second story. At the top of the stairs, patrons were greeted by a beautiful hand-painted poster advertising the next upcoming concert.
These unique 28" x 44" cardboard concert posters were hand-painted by well-known graphic artist, Andy Jennings. His posters often included an original photo of the artist and sometimes even original (single) records or picture sleeves."
