Louise Brooks - Egyptian advertising flyer

Here is a recently acquired treasure, an advertising piece from Cairo, Egypt circa 1930. This is only the second instance the LBS has come across of an image of Louise Brooks in Egypt from the silent or early sound era. The Cinema Jardin theater lasted at least into the years of the second World War (see theater ticket below), while a Cafe Cinema Jardin is in business in Cairo today. This bit of ephemera was bought on eBay from an Egyptian dealer.
