Avalon Ballroom 4/26-28/68
Alton Kelley designed this whimsical image for a three-day weekend of shows at the Avalon Ballroom in April 1968. The central image features a photograph of a group of soldiers wearing gas masks and the title is “It’s a Gas.”
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.
