Friday Farming: The Country Gentleman
The Country Gentleman issue of November 4, 1916.
The magazine was founded in 1831 and ran until 1955. It truly was agricultural magazine, with a large readership, which devoted itself to the business of farming. Its publican ended when it was bought out by a competitor.
It's covers often resembled those of The Saturday Evening Post, and were often in fact by the same artists. That was no accident. It was owned by the same publisher.
