Text of a slightly out-of-date poster seen last week in the window of Paul Baars Design Studio Store at Frederiksplein 16-18 in Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

For the benefit of those of you who don’t get out much,

Bob Hope was a comedian, singer and dancer, who was born in London, England, in 1903 and died at Los Angeles, California, in 2003;

Johnny Cash was a singer and songwriter, who was born at Kingsland, Arkansas, in 1932 and died at Nashville, Tennessee, in 2003; and

Steve Jobs, an entrepreneur who was born in 1955 at San Francisco, California, and died nearby at Palo Alto in 2011, co-founded the personal computer and smartphone company, Apple.
