Description

Those who attended the Stork Club in later years, and found it too crowded to dance with fifteen hundred people on the floor, may well wonder how more than four times that many even found the room to breathe.

The growing popularity of television, the mobility of the automobile, and the increasing affluence of Canadians brought force the loss of its captive London and St. Thomas patrons.

In the early 1950's the Stork Club could well afford to bring in a top ranking group and still make a profit. Only a few years later entertainers such as Elvis Presley, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones were far too expensive to book into the dance hall. For the first time since it was built, the ballroom could no longer provide its audiences with the top stars in the music field.
