Newport, KY. Donaldson Litho. Company, Undated, c. 1920’s. 42 x 54 in. chromolithograph on paper. Item #4883
A superb oversized poster by the venerated commercial printing house. In the absence of event-specific information, this was likely produced as a salesman’s sample, and would have likely been printed to order with specific event information to be supplied by the client, a theory supported by the encompassing, if not generic display of fair life - a tableaux including an early carnival ride, a Ferris wheel, minstrels, and a carousel.
