The Roland Park Poster of 1991, also known as The Roland Park Centennial Poster was a big hit back in “the day.” The Roland Park Community Foundation has reprinted this piece by local artist, humorist and author Barbara Dale. Barbara Dale offered to update the original art to give the current Roland Parkers something they could identify with. (Honestly, when was the last time you heard someone waxing poetic over a Morgan Millard’s egg salad on cheese toast?) The posters are for sale at Eddie’s of Roland Park, The Carriage House of Schneider’s (Hardware), and Tuxedo Pharmacy . The 2018 poster will sell for $20 and the 1991, is a limited release will be hand-numbered and autographed by Barbara Dale will sell for $30. The posters will be framed and donated to the Roland Park Library for a permanent display. The Roland Park Community Foundation will also donate a framed copy of the new poster to each of the five schools of Roland Park. (Bryn Mawr, Gilman, Friends, RPCS, and RPEMS).
