Measuring a very, very, diminutive 5 1/2 inches wide X 3 1/2 inches tall, this extraordinarily rare, Jim Crow era, segregation sign advertises a "colored-only" Austin, Texas, theater.

Constructed of metal with green printing, this circa 1920's sign reads: "HARLEM, Austin's Only Exclusive Colored Theatre, Telephone 83?5?33".

The sign remains in all-original condition inclusive of two holes designed to facilitate the posting of the sign upon a surface.

Quite possibly the ONLY sign remaining extant from this particular, racially segregated establishment. An historically significant piece!
