The Saturday Evening Post is a American magazine, started in 1897 and still in existence. It was monumental in its use of American illustrators on the famous covers, and exposing these designers and art to the American public, from Norman Rockwell, to Stevan Dohanos, to JC Leyendecker to NC Wyeth and many more.
This poster is by well known artist John Falter (1910-1982) of Plattsmouth, Nebraska. He was best known for his these covers, and also his World War II propaganda posters and commercial illustrative art.
The image is a beautiful American night scene of lovers "parking" in their old 1940's cars automobiles near an American water tower, with a bright moon. A beautiful summer night in America. One couple has a young man playing guitar, other walk in woods, hand in hand. It is a rich, deep, dark ad haunting scene with lush green trees. This image is entitled "Lovers Lane, Fall City, Nebraska" by the Saturday Evening Post.
An inset square reveals the content of the magazine, "Why Were We Caught Napping at Pearl Harbor" by Seth W. Richardson and "How to Crack a Safe" by Rufus Jarman.
