A jubilant worker celebrates completing construction of another warship in this American WWI poster. He swings from the newly built jackstaff, as the American flag waves in the wind. A busy shipyard can be seen in the background.

This poster from 1918 was commissioned by the Emergency Fleet Corporation (EFC). The EFC was founded in 1917 by the United States Shipping Board (USSB), which was established while the United States was at peace to try to restore the nation's Merchant Marine ship supply. After the entry of the U.S. into WWI, the function of the USSB changed radically, becoming a military agency that maintained the line of communication between America and Europe.

George Hand Wright (1872 - 1951) was a painter and illustrator from Pennsylvania who created several WWI posters. He produced many cover illustrations for periodicals such as Scribner's and was a founding member of the artists community in Westport, Connecticut. The U.S. Library of Congress has a collection of over one hundred of Wright's illustrations.

  • 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.
