About The Poster: I am a fan of old almanacs because I think you would be hard-pressed to find anything as authentic (and quirky) as the information you find in almanacs: predicted rainfall, farm wages, tobacco production - the kinds of things that farmers used to pay significant attention to and which the general public now pays little or no attention to. The graphs in almanacs are particularly interesting, which is why I had a dozen of them matted.

I think they'd enhance almost any room in your home or office, and they might teach you a thing or two at the same time!

Matted and ready to frame.

This lovely print is from a book published in the late 1890s and is typical of the type of the high society Gibson portrayed so well. It is in very good condition, and measures 11.5 x 16 inches. It has an additional print on the reverse of the page.
