Annual Farm and Home Week, Illinois

Annual Farm and Home Week seems to have been a yearly event held in Illinois from about 1900-1962 (see, e.g., here and here). I couldn't find much information about it on the Internet, leading me to believe that it either ended, or it goes by an entirely different name today. But this WPA poster is yet another example of how New Deal artists promoted local events. Image courtesy of the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
