    Description

    Ships for Uncle Sam (Signal Corps, 1910s). One Sheet (27" X 41.5") Joseph Pennell Artwork.
    Most may associate naval propaganda with the Pacific theater of WWII, but the ships of WWI also played a vital role protecting Europe-bound troops and supplies from the unseen menace of German U-boats. Featuring a magnificent sketch by Joseph Pennell, this Heritage first shows tears in the borders, minor chips, staining and smudging, surface wrinkling, and surface paper loss in the text. There is tape on the verso of the linen. The linen has been trimmed to the border on three sides, except the top. Fine on Linen.
