Signed by a ?K. Pearson,? an advertising artist who has not been identified by current research, this work would have been produced by the S.H. Benson advertising agency of London in the 1930s. Benson was one of the leading advertising agencies of the day, also creating campaigns for Guinness, Macleans, Lipton?s Tea, and Colman?s Mustard, while Jameson Distillery and the Irish Tourism Board teamed up to sell both Ireland and whiskey. In addition to Jameson Jameson Irish Whiskey, the work also depicts two famed attractions near Dublin, the Leopardstown Racecourse and Portmarnock Golf Club. Still attached to the face of the piece is a label from the Jameson Distiller?s Co., noting the work as a proposed advertising campaign and not to remove, signed off by an employee C.R.H.Register
