Description: Photograph of Chuck Foster and his orchestra performing at the Port Arthur, Texas, Pleasure Pier. Five men with saxophones are standing at podiums in the foreground, with a man and woman in evening wear sitting on the right. Behind the front row to the left are two men sitting at a piano, and other musicians to the right are obscured by the standing men. A banner printed with "Chuck Foster" and "Merry Christmas" are hung above an image of Santa Claus' head, all of which hangs over the band. Plants and wreaths are festooned across the wall in the background. On the lower portion of the photo, Chuck Foster has autographed the picture with "To Jean with love."
