Watsonville Airport...

Two posters printed on white card stock, designed by Jack Irwin and printed in navy blue ink by the Watsonville Press. "AIR RACES, Stunting, Racing, Parachuting, Watsonville Airport, Sunday, Oct. 17, 1937, admission only 10 cents. And Sat. Nite, Oct. 16, The Grand Aviation Ball At the Auditorium, Sponsored by Live Wire Club, Admission Only 40 cents." A and B: Printed information is identical; they differ only in the way they are hand colored. The green squares at the finish line of "B" appear to be a little paler. Image of a red and green airplane flying to the finish line with a pennant at the finished line. At the bottom is a large, red drum, played by a drummer, dressed in green.
