Could someone please tell me the name and maker of the dishes handed out on “dish night” in the 1940’s/50’s. My family all grew up in St. Louis and that was an every Saturday night thing for them. I am trying to find the name so I may be able to start a collection of them. Thank you for any information.

Years of operation were 1917 to 1960.

The architect was R. A. Matthews.

The Melba and most of the theatres that bore that name were named after the very popular singer of the ealy 1900’s, Nellie Melba.

She is also famous for the other 2 things named after her, Melba Toast and Peachm Melba.
