Vintage Vaudevillians is a photographic exhibition in Old City Hall’s first floor main gallery highlighting a dozen vaudeville acts that performed in Bellingham in the early 20th century. Originally used to promote the acts, these publicity photos were saved by James Warwick, stage manager at downtown theaters during vaudeville’s heyday.
