Tuesday’s ad is for Urania Zürich, from 1950. 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 was made for the Urania Zürich Bier and Speise Restaurant, a Swiss “beer and food restaurant” located in Zürich, Switzerland. I don’t know if it’s still a going concern, but there is a Urania Sternwarte in Zürich, which is a telescope observatory, so that’s likely the area where it was located. The poster was created by Swiss artist Alfred Koella.
