Comments : I read an article on the auction of the original pen-and-brush artwork for the A Night-Club Map of Harlem poster, 1932, by E. Simms Campbell. It sold for $100,000, according to the Maine Antique Digest, June 2016, at 9C, 10C. Gladys Clam House is on it, and after some Web research, Im beginning to think that Ediths is also Gladys, named after blues singer Gladys Bentley.
