Fact #48847


Short story:

A new $150,000 dance venue, The Trocadero, opens in Sydney, Australia, with seating for 2,000 patrons. Its furnishings include scarlet carpet with a fleurs-de-lis pattern, picked out in cream, gold and black. The bandstand is described by the Sydney Morning Herald as 'shell shaped and with coloured lights presenting a constantly changing scene'. It will become a hub of Sydney nightlife for more than thirty years, with Frank Coughlan [aka The Father Of Australian Jazz'], leading the house band for most of that time.
