This is an AUTHENTIC/ORIGINAL 1940s PALISADES PARK 3-SHEET POSTER (Linen-Backed). A COLLECTOR'S PIECE Your chance to own this RARE and highly sought after piece of Americana.
You may see reprints on the web of these, but rarely if ever will you find an original 3-Sheet poster in very fine condition (or any condition for that matter). WHY IS THIS RARE Beyond beauty, beyond the allure of Palisades Amusement Park, beyond the extremely low supply and the very high demand for stunning artwork and vintage posters there's historic facts.This type of poster and it's size (3-Sheet size) were almost always displayed by gluing it up to a brick wall, alley fence or boarded up building. This type of poster was typically exposed to sun, rain, snow and other elements, which destroyed almost all of of them over a short period of time. These posters were not created to be collected. Vintage advertising served an exact purpose-to advertise. They were printed in in extremely low quantities as needed. They were not printed in the hundreds or thousands like small print advertisements. Then WWII created mass paper drives. Many film studios, advertising companies and businesses (As well as civilians) were called upon to recycle to aid the War effort.
It's all of the above that lend to its scarcity beyond items created in later decades. A collector's piece in every way. Size Approximately 41x79 (Inches) plus one inch linen over hang on all sides.
