As part of America's World War I efforts, there was an ongoing effort to support troops overseas through production work at home. In this 1918 poster created by Spear, we see a campaign by the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) to recruit men to help in the production of artillery and machinery. The poster specifically promotes the United War Work Campaign in its efforts from November 11-18, 1918.

This poster was created by Adrian Gil Spear (1885 - 1965), an American graphic artist of whom little is known. His son, also named Adrian Gil Spear is the better known of two. He worked for Ford and GM in the 1940s and designed many illustrations for both car companies.

  • 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.
