Naylor passed away in 1989 and his poster collection was passed to his cousin DG Smith. Mount Airy is the birthplace of Andy Griffith and the town Mayberry was based on. The Earle Theatre was built in 1938. As an added bonus, this poster was just "linen-backed" and is ready for framing. During the linen backing process, the poster is cleaned and attached to acid free linen.This included acid-neutralizing, linen backing to acid free paper & canvas, and color retouching in the creases, rips or folds. If you would like to see this poster before this process was done, you can see it at the URL below. Feel free to see the work he has done on his website. Exact size of one sheet is 27-1/2" x 41" with a 1/2" border all around for the linen canvas making the full item size 28-1/2" x 42. Pictures of poster before restoration.
This is not a fake or reproduction, but a real original poster with known provenance restored and ready for framing by you. This would make a great present for that Star Wars science fiction movie fan! Please review all the pictures for exact condition.
