The Terror of Tiny Town - Lobby Cards
Here are a few Lobby Cards from Columbia Pictures' The Terror of Tiny Town (1938), featuring "Jed Buell's Midgets." Lobby Cards were 11" x 14" posters that came in sets of 8. As the name implies, they were most often displayed in movie theater lobbies, to advertise current or coming attractions.
