Country Gentleman was an American agricultural magazine that was founded in 1831. In 1955 it was the 2nd most popular agricultural magazine in the US with almost 3 million subscribers.

I discovered a great new resource- it’s an online museum of all sorts of design and memorabilia from the Netherlands. It’s easy to navigate and has nice large images.

The soccer poster is titled “Zondag a.s. voetbalwedstrijd tusschen D.F.C.” and was created in 1900-1925.
