This is a boy scout calendar from the Young Department Store of Mattoon Illinois. Back in the long ago there were single store department stores. The notable one around here was Hinshaw's in Whittier. Now the department stores are close to extinct..
As to the calendar it is for the year 1970. The photos would have been from the 1960s. It has cover art by Norman Rockwell. The photos for each month tend to have the look of the Norman Rockwell paintings. He did his paintings from photographs so perhaps he took the photographs. The last one not so much.
I would like to get some Scout calendars from the 194s/1950s. This 1970s one is semi-vintage.
