Through the ’60s and ’70s, in the kitchens of our mothers and grandmothers hung the impressionism prints to which the annual Buffalo Evening News calendar was stapled.

The following are an incomplete collection of News calendars from 1964 to 1975. Do you remember any of these painting calendars? Where did they hang in your home?
