    Has to be at least 1947. "The Egg and I" is on the theater marquee down the street, and that movie was released in 1947.

    even more specifically, new York Premiere 24 April 1947

    but there's more!
    The Vigilantes Return released 1 June 1947
    which matches the summery clothing you see.

    This bill opened at the Apollo for one week on Friday, July 25, 1947. The movie premiered on this date was "Sepia Cinderella."

    This picture was taken in 1947 and it is so authentic and vintage. I'm so glad that we have pictures like this to really appreciate our history, especially involving music from the past.

    Mr. Schiffman needed to order more "T"s for the marquee! (Arnett, Catlett)
