WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (January 18, 2013)--An eclectic trove of memorabilia from the famed 1970s New York nightclub Studio 54 is going on the auction block in Florida.
The private collection of co-founder Steve Rubell will be sold Saturday in West Palm Beach.
Rubell died in 1989 and aside from a legacy as a nightlife impresario, he left behind hordes of photographs, letters and other memories that his onetime companion has decided to part with.
The items give a glimpse of Studio 54 and its parade of A-list guests.
Aside from a trove of photographs, there are original works by Andy Warhol, tickets, invitations, posters and Rubell's personal address book.
Also up for sale is the front-door guest book from 54, full of famous names and notations on whether the club was footing their tabs.
