The Palm NYC Restaurant 40s Vintage Brochure Cartoons Caricatures King Features

Here is a 52 page vintage brochure from the original Palm Restaurant located at 837 2nd Ave in New York City. Opened in 1926 by Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi. Being only a short distance from the headquarters of King Features Syndicate, The Palm attracted a large clientele of cartoonists. Jolly Bill Steinke began the tradition of drawing caricatures of regular Palm customers on the undecorated restaurant walls. This booklet is full of photos of the walls, the owners, the cooks, 1939-1941 newspaper and magazine articles; etc. Since that time, the original Palm has become "a living museum of cartoons and caricatures featuring such famous faces as Popeye, Batman, Beetle Bailey, Hagar the Horrible, etc." The PalmÕs walls were professionally restored in 1995 in order to preserve these legendary hand-drawn sketches... many of which were drawn in charcoal and pastels.

This booklet was originally staple bound but the staples were removed so the pages are no longer fastened together. There are yellow stains most noticeable inside both covers. Stains get fainter on pages as you go toward the center of the booklet from both front and back. The back inside cover is half covered with columns of numbers written in pencil and someone's name in pencil and ink. 6-3/4" x 8-5/8". Short tears in pages at top near spine edge. Cover has grayed and has white dots of missing surface. Not in the best condition... but it's a neat old item with lots of swell pictures. Purchased many years ago in a box of old photos from an estate sale. 12s3.99
