Burt Frohman, Square Dance Caller

I found this business card in a desk in a real estate office I used to work in, c. 1981, in Long Island City (which is in Queens, not on Long Island). The phone number uses the exchange as a word (DIckens, not numerals) and the zip code has only two digits, indicating Mr. Frohman circulated this card prior to the 1960s. And the illustration shows a certain 1950s flair. Sweet! Love the idea of  square dancing in New York City. And someone calling the moves, perhaps with a Brooklyn accent.
