It's the first I recall seeing them here. An astonishingly high-quality version 
of that 1918 poster is available here:


It's 2365✕4200 pixels and is better than what the Library of Congress publishes. 
And all for a poster containing false propaganda! Although farmers opposed 
daylight saving time, city-dwellers were told via posters like this that farmers 
liked DST, and the resulting confusion persists to this day.
