Description

This poster printed on a green background features a large illustration of President Abraham Lincoln holding a can of Rainier Ale within an oval white line border. Olive branches separate the illustration from the title "Honest Ale" which is printed in an arc to match the oval. Swirl designs decorate the corners and margins. A decorative rectangular border just inside the edges completes the poster. The publisher's information is printed below the border in the lower right corner. This poster is an example of the use of the Lincoln name/image to promote positive feelings toward a business or organization.
