Now That's a Calendar

A while back I issued a bleg for a good old-style insurance-company calendar, the kind that used to hang in barber shops and gas stations. Sometimes they featured a painting of wildlife or maybe the American flag. I rarely see them anymore.

Well last month, a Peabody, Massachusetts high-school teacher came through with exactly what I had in mind:

A nice, big two-color calendar from an insurance company well into its second century. It features man-in-the-moon phases, red letter days, and at the bottom, a Farmer's-Almanac-style weather forecast for the month. At home in any 1947 office or place of business.
