This poster design was commissioned by Abbott Labs , a medical products company that supplied the United States military forces in World War I and II . The text on the bottom of the poster reads "Published by Abbott Laboratories as a Contribution to the Treasury's Schools-At-War Program". This particular design emphasizes all citizens in the home front should bear their obligation to support the war effort by purchasing war bonds to help finance the war. In this festive image , the viewer is encouraged to think of what a victory parade might feel like by witnessing the celebration shown in the image. Note, the soldier holding his rifle aloft while dangling a captured Nazi helmet around his neck.

Born in Philadelphia, Joseph Hirsch ( 1910-1981) began his study of art at the Philadelphia Museum when he was seventeen. He participated in the Works Project Administration in the easel painting division, with occasional work on murals. During World War II, Hirsch took part in the war effort as an artist war correspondent, recording significant battles and events. After the war he taught at the Chicago Institute of Art.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
