  • Description

    What's a naked lady, her modesty covered by only a few palm fronds, doing in New York in the early 1940s?  She's gracing the front cover of the menu of the legendary restaurant and nightclub The Hurricane. This nightspot in the Brill Building evoked the atmosphere of the South Pacific, with a décor of palm trees and tropical flora and fauna. Big band leader Duke Ellington played here and it was one of the first nightclubs to have an integrated clientele. It operated from 1940 to 1944. The image, created by Chicago artist Wesley Morse who also illustrated covers for El Morocco and The Copacabana among many others.

    The central image is also available as a unisex digitally printed tee in our Apparel+ collection.
