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.
