Additional Details

Original cover art of two women skaters in costume for the Twenty-Seventh Annual Shipstads and Johnson Ice Follies souvenir program (copy included). Begun in 1937, the Ice Follies merged with Holiday on Ice in 1979. The program lists such numbers as "Pacific Paradise," "Pink Champagne," "It Could Only Happen in Texas," and, surely the show-stopper, "Fantasy in Space" - featuring "a total of 154 yards of sliver plated nylon chiffon." Charming Camelot-era painting.
