    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Navy Recruiting Bureau, Late 1910s). Recruitment Poster (28" X 43.5") "You Wireless Fans," C. B. Falls Artwork.
    Charles Buckles Falls, better known as C. B. Falls, created this recruiting poster for radio operators. It was an effort to locate and stop the German "wolf pack" of submarines destroying the navy, merchant marines, and the supply lines of munitions and food to the war effort. Touchup has been applied to a few small border chips, leaving unaddressed mild tears, creases, and a minor strain in the image. There is a tear in the bottom border into the bottom of the poster. Very Fine- on Linen.
