More about the photo above:
One signed "Club Alabam" hat, circa 1935. The hat is a tan felt fedora with a brown band. Printed on the inside and outside of the hat are signatures in black ink. Club Alabam, located at "The Block" in the heart of Central Avenue in Los Angeles, served as the central site for the West Coast renaissance of jazz.  Although the club primarily served an upper-middle class black audience, a diverse group of individuals patronized the establishment. The signatures on the hat range from jazz legend Duke Ellington and poet Langston Hughes to actors Buck Jones and Spencer Tracy.
