  7. These posters below are made to look like the latest news posters you get outside news agents these days .
    tommy farr was a heavy weight boxer in the 30s . he was british & empire champion in 1937.
    he challenged for the world title in 1937 , against joe louis in new york .
    must have been a big fight at the time, that probably why standard printed this type of poster. DSCF0935.JPG DSCF0933.JPG DSCF0930.JPG DSCF0934.JPG
