Ellen’s On Front Greenport Posters


Come see these eight original wood type posters at Ellen’s On Front, the great new restaurant here in Greenport. Their address is 38 Front Street, directly across the street from our shop.

The posters were printed to promote local events. They were produced from the 1950s through the 1970s. They feature vernacular typography, copywriting, event concepts, and more. An interesting way to travel back in time and appreciate the family-friendly aspect to the entertainment offered here in the historic waterfront village of Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island in New York. Order the BBQ spare ribs and the Chinese long beans.
