1920 Dairy Milk and Airplane Vintage Poster
This is a wonderful and uncommon poster we have never seen before in our travels. The scene shows a speedy deco plane with the word “milk” on one wing, flying over an American landscape. It shows a railroad scene of steam engine train, milk truck on the highway, machine age skyscrapers, and a patchwork of American farm lands. The advertising line reads “Milk has the right of Way” and it was produced by the Dairymen`s League Cooperative Association in New York. Condition is A, freshly linen mounted.
It displays beautifully and is a great little historical dairy piece, produced to enhance farm production. We have 3 old original Dairymen’s league posters, all found together, numbers 533, 525 and 524. We feel this piece is also by artist Carroll Snell as the others, and unsigned.
The Dairymen`s League was started in 1907, by a group of dairy farmers in Orange County, New York. They united to increase milk bargaining power and formed one of the country`s first food cooperatives – The Dairymen`s League. By the 1920s, the Cooperative`s membership had grown to more than 100,000 farms.

Although this beverage poster has some staining, it was well worth saving because of the wonderful deco skyscarper and naive WPA era plane scene, as well as all the other great American attributes of railway and aviation. An uncommon poster we have not seen before. Found in the dairy country area of NYS, the poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one.
