PACIFIC NORTHWEST - SPRINGER'S - PORTLAND OREGON


All of the following concert handbills, etc. were created for concerts at Springer's Ballroom in Portland, Oregon and are First / Only printing (fully guaranteed!) unless otherwise noted.


The Springer's handbills and posters featured the most colorful pieces to appear in the Portland area during the late '60's & 70's.


Apparently, Corberry Press, the Portland printer, wore out their presses printing the multiple color posters!
