"When in Doubt - Light's Out!" is one of the many public service announcements commissioned by the House of Seagram's as part of their National Victory Effort campaign. These posters were produced throughout the Second World War. The message in this poster is to heighten awareness of German U- Boats and their surveillance along the coasts of America.

Seagram's was a distillery and beverage maker founded in Ontario, Canada by Joseph Seagram. The company existed from 1857-2000, before selling in part to the Coca-Cola Company, which still produces their Ginger Ale and Tonic Water varieties.

Seymour Goff (1904-1992) was the director of Seagram's art department beginning in the 1930s. Many of his works are signed "es-ar-gee", a humble play on his initials, S.R.G. (Seymour Rinaldo Goff), but this poster has his full name written out in the wake of the German U-Boat.

  • 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.
