Object Name Poster
Description Cardboard backed color poster of the May 13, 1950 Saturday Evening Post Cover, Muddy Walk Home, by John Falter. The cover features two children in the foreground and rolling fields in the background. A boy is walking in mud along the side of a dirt road, carrying his shoes in his hands by the shoestrings. A girl in a white and blue dress holding books in one hand is watching the boy walk. An electric pole stands to the right of the boy, and a white dog is lying at the base of it. The field next to the children has been plowed. The fields in the background are green pastures with cows next to a plowed field. On the top left of the cover is "The Saturday Evening // Post // May 13, 1950 - 15¢" printed in white on a burgundy square. To the right is a white square with black print listing two articles in the magazine. The poster is backed by particle board and two holes with metal reinforcements are cut in the top right and left corners.
