Avalon Ballroom 9/22-24/67
This image advertised a three-day series of shows at the Avalon Ballroom in September 1967 that features The Charlatans and Buddy Guy. Robert Fried designed this piece and it is one of the more popular of the later Family Dog posters.
The original poster was printed on uncoated index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″.
The postcard comes in three varieties, all of which measure approximately 5″ x 7″:
The Type A card has a “place stamp here” reverse.
The Type B card has a bulk rate permit on the back.
The Type C card has a bulk rate permit on the back and was mechanically addressed and sent to people on the Family Dog mailing list.
