DescriptionWorld War I Propaganda (National War Savings Committee, 1918). Folded, Very Fine. Full Bleed British Poster (19.5" X 29.5").
In its efforts to raise money, the British government realized that even small sums would be vital if it could attract enough of them. It appointed a committee to consider war finance in relation to small investors. The committee reported in January 1916, and its recommendations included the formation of a network of local war savings associations. In April 1916 national war savings committees were set up for England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland. They promoted the formation of local associations, which took responsibility for encouraging savings activities in their community. Within a year, thousands were in operation. This magnificent WWI poster displaying artwork by artist "AJ," displays beautifully. Folded, Very Fine.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
