Us Air Mail Pilot Paul Stahr Post Office 1919 American Decor Poster Print 1241 For Sale
The2FunAdGuyz offer a new, high-quality reproduction print of a whimsical poster derived from the February 1, 1919 Judge Magazine cover done by a very popular magazine artist, Paul Stahr.
Holding Up The Male is the title and yes, it is a pun not a misspelling. After the end of World War I, many young fliers found work flying airmail for contractors of the United States Post Office. Of course these dashing young pilots made the hearts of many young women in the many towns they visited. In this work, four young women (one of whom is almost hidden) hand a letter to a pilot in an open aircraft while he holds the hand of one of them.
We have this cover in two versions. This one does not have the magazine logo, date and headline and is larger than the other version. The other version includes the magazine logo, date and top headline but the actual image is much smaller than it appears here. To see the smaller version Click Here.
Paul Stahr (1883-1953) was a prolific illustrator for books and magazines including pulp mens magazines
During the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds Puck, Judge and the early Life magazines combined a literary, artistic and political bent. Judge was founded as a weekly in 1881 by a group of artists who had previously worked for Puck. Eventually the magazine was sold to a wealthy man who aligned the magazine with the Republican Party. The magazine succeeded right through the 1920s and employed some of the best writers and artists of the period including James Montgomery Flagg, Charles Dana Gibson, Penrhyn Stanlaws, Howard Chandler Christy and Harrison Fisher among others.
