Two-sided advertising poster promoting the New England Sportsmen's and Boat Show at the Mechanic's Building in Boston.  The 16" x 22" poster features two different designs, each mounted on a heavy cardboard backing, back-to-back for visibility in two directions.  The advertisement on one side pictures Ted Williams in Red Sox jersey and cap, inset against a background of illustrations featuring a variety of boating and fishing activities.  The reverse is printed in light green and red, far less graphically intense, with a few light illustrations near the bottom of the poster.  Both sides are in poor condition with significant wear, paper loss, creasing and tears, and yet the durability of the cardboard backing to which they are glued has kept both sides sturdy and intact.  The first example of either poster we have ever seen, a local, Boston-area advertisement featuring the hometown hero, Ted Williams.
