Poster: "I'll carry mine too! Trucks and Tires Must Last Till Victory"

Washington DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1943. OWI Poster No.28 - jointly-issued by the Office of War Information and the Office of Defense Transportation. A clever homefront propaganda poster geared towards American citizens - particularly women - that by doing something as small as choosing to walk their groceries home instead of driving could be a valuable contribution towards the war effort. The poster, designed by photographer Valentino Sarra, shows a montage depicting a woman with an armful of groceries and parcels amidst a group of soldiers marching in the background - a reminder that our actions here at home affected the boys on the front. Original photo-illustrated poster, lithographed in colors and measuring 56.5cm x 71cm (22 1/8" x 28"). Professionally linen-backed, with old fold lines faintly visible; some expert, pinpoint retouching to a few small spots at lower fold (center), and at the intersection of several points along center fold; Near Fine. A-.
