A compact collection of 1950s photographs and archival material relating to The Continental Dance Club, located at the Lafayette Hotel, 2223 El Cajon Blvd. in San Diego. Five 8î x 10î photographs of the clubís interior and exterior (stamped "K. Jordan-Day") reveal fine mid-century furnishings, interior design, and hand-painted signage. Four 5î x 7î prints show couples dancing. Business materials include an illustrated mailing envelope, blank membership forms, a blank sales contract, a proof sheet and two clippings of an ad which appeared in the San Diego Union Tribune, and a rough draft plus finished direct mail TLS from the clubís grand opening ad campaign. The club operated on a membership model and promised professional dance instruction along with the opportunity to "mix with wonderful people who share your enthusiasm for social friendship, music and dancing." American entrepreneurship meets post-war optimism.
