An early original advertising poster from the East Hampton NY Edward’s Theatre. Bold graphic wood type printed on light sand-colored paper in black and red. Classic. There are several bits of damage to the very old paper and the original is unmounted. A good conservator could restore it easily but we like the distressed look of it.
It is framed is solid black wood with a ribbed design and a glass face. It is 15 × 23 inches with the frame. The film, Men of Steel, came out in 1926 so assume this is the date of the poster as well.
