The current version of Riverside Ballroom, located at 1560 Main St in Green Bay, dates to 1935 and is apparently slated for replacement in 2014. Hüsker Dü played one of their last shows here on 07 Dec 1987. It was also the site of Buddy Holly's second-last show, the night before his final performance in Clear Lake IA. Google streetview photo is from 2013 and the Wisconsin Historical Markers photos are apparently from 2012 (the shot of the marquee listing Buddy Holly is not from 1959). The postcard, with its three-digit telephone number, probably dates to the 30s or 40s. The photo with the sign over the awning-protected entrance is of unknown date, 60s possibly.
