Back in June and July 2007 I covered several dance halls and I would like to add another. Today's dance hall interior is the beautiful Oasis Dancing Pavilion in Washington Park on Lake Michigan in Michigan City Indiana. Be sure to notice the draped blue cloth on the ceilings with lights shaped like stars to give the appearance of dancing under the stars. Palm trees line the floor and on the right are buildings painted on the wall with openings which probably led to refreshments and a place to refresh. There are six ceiling fans hanging down to provide the evening breeze and the bandstand is located at the far end of the room. Information on the back indicates "It is one of the largest and finest Pavilions in the country, where dancing is enjoyed nightly during the summer resort season." This is a Curteich postcard which was produced in 1930 and can be found in my Indiana listings on my website, Moody's Postcards.
