The Original Cellar, 2514 Watson (1956-63)

Partly visible behind the head of the fellow far left is The Trio (1954), an enamelled linocut by Vancouver artist Harry Webb.

Go here for the only known film images of the original Cellar club (and a few seconds showing bearded artist Harry Webb at work there, I believe).

For more about Harry and Jessie Webb, I highly recommend The Life and Art of Harry and Jessie Webb by Adrienne Brown (Salt Spring Island: Mother Tongue Publishing), 2014.
