Scarce. This postcard was produced in 1942, the year the famed Balinese Room made its debut. What makes this postcard particularly significant is that it gives us a rare glimpse of Virgil Quadri’s original interior design just as it looked on the day the club opened, January 17, 1942. Years later Quadri would return to redesign it, and it is his later version that most alive today remember.
