The quaint coastal New England village in this poster represents an ideal scene, one of nostalgia that catered to Americans' growing fascination with their national history during the 1920s and 1930s. It mirrored the old-time charm of Wallace Nutting's colonial revival photographs and John D. Rockefeller's fledgling restorations at Williamsburg, VA.
