Clippings, Entertainment


Box 1 Folder 46: "OK moving to box 1 number 46 are a number of clippings from the Birmingham World newspaper from 1948. They describe many activities going on in the city of Birmingham. Some commentary can be seen on national issues as well. Various advertisements for entertainment and so forth. The Carver Theater is mentioned extensively in it as well as various companies that supported the Carver Theater. The grand opening of the Carver Theater was apparently December 25, Christmas Day, 1948. The ad for space at Forniss Printing came out nine months before WEDR 1220 AM occupied that space.The congratulations from local businesses were reprinted in the Memphis World. All other clips come from the Birmingham World. This is from the Memphis World in Memphis, Tennessee. Lots of local businesses supporting the opening of the Carver Theater."
