In 1974, a discovery was made of a cache of Chicago area transit posters of the 1920's. These were found abandoned in a storage locker and brought to David Gartler the owner of Poster Plus.
Mr. Gartler has conserved, exhibited, promoted and sold originals and reproductions of these long forgotten masterpieces of railroad advertising art. On May 27th, Mr. Gartler will present a slide presentation and talk about the history, importance, and thrill of ongoing discoveries of what have been called the Insull posters. Original and reproduction posters will be on display and for sale. Major credit cards will be accepted.
