Ad Promoting the Cast of Badia Masabni's Summer Club
Probably Early 1930's

 

 

 

Translated By Priscilla Adum

 

 

 

The source for this advertisement did not identify the date it appeared or the publication. Because it mentions that Fantazio was the business formerly in that location, it seems likely this ad may have appeared in one of the early years that Badia used that location, sometime between 1930 and 1933. (A 1933 ad mentioned the club was located in the former Fantazio.)
