Description Cardboard backed color poster of the March 1, 1947 Saturday Evening Post Cover featuring the illustration Cowboy Hanging Out His Laundry by John Falter.

In the background in the corral are horses and a man standing among them. A pile of square bays is stacked beyond the corral. In the distance are bluffs, cacti, and sage brush. On the lower left corner is the artist's signature. At the top of the poster is the title of the magazine, date, price, and a listing of articles contained in the magazine.
