Notes Needs further research. Through Internet searches, there are numerous posters like this one. None of the auction sites were reliable in dating the poster and vary in date of printing. Need to determine the extact date of printing and who produced the reproduction. Looks like it was reproduced several times, and original lithographs sat in storage for some time as well, but this is also unreliable information.
