This item is part of the Roadposter collection. In 1955, Tom Magee founded Roadposter, an outdoor advertising and billboard company in Denver, Colorado (company later located in Littleton as sticker on 92.467.2 indicates). Except for the actual posting of the posters, Magee did all the work connected with his plant. This involved leasing, selling, servicing, office work, and erecting the poster panels. His wife Julianne (noted as Judy in attached article and in HC file; obit does not mention "Judy") did all of the necessary artwork. The Roadposter collection (including art, photos, posters and MSS material) spans the life of the company from 1955 to 1990. See attached bio sketch for Tom Magee and obit for Julianne Magee for additional information.
