Friday’s ad is for Birra Milano, from around 1906. From the late 1800s until the 1960s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. This poster is for the Birra Milano, located in Milan, Italy, and I believe was founded in 1906. This poster was created by Alsatian artist Franz Laskoff, who worked in Paris and Milan until 1906, when he left for England, before disappearing in 1918, so that’s most likely when the poster was done.
