Thanks to Jeff Gruhn for this piece of history.

I found this poster on a wall in a basement on Galindo St. about 1979 as the two story home was torn down to make way for apartments. At the bottom of the poster it says “ladies free”.

That’s great, thanks again, Jeff!

That prize of the $50 bond is now worth between $215-220! Although I doubt whoever won that prize still has it, but you never know.

Doesn’t this look like it was a wonderous event!

I’m 90% sure there was a wet t-shirt contest during this! I’m serious…I saw a film of it.

Yeah, the Firemen’s Ball was something. But the Firemen’s Other Ball was something else…
