Series III: Newspaper Posters

Scope and Contents Note

Series III, Newspaper Posters, contains 134 posters from 1895 and 1896. Posters primarily advertise New York daily and Sunday papers. A few posters from other East Coast cities are also included.

Newspaper Posters are organized alphabetically by periodical, and then filed by date. Each poster has been assigned an item number based on that arrangement and are housed in flat files by item number.

Artists, where identified, are listed in parantheses after the newspaper title.
