10.16. Calgary Stampede Poster, Calgary,1950

Maple Leaves, Chuck Wagon Race, Mounties

This 1950s poster format was used for almost a decade. There is little information about designers or artists responsible for the creation of the posters. Many times for community events such as this the organizing committee worked a local printer who would supply the art work as well. There is no mention of a competition or the process of selecting each years poster designs.
