During World War ll conservation was a major part of the war effort on the home front. Many posters were created to promote the conservation of materials, such as metal, rubber, and rags, as well as food. This poster by an anonymous artist from 1943 urges the public against wasting food.

Food rationing was an important aspect of the WWII era and each citizen was encouraged to do their part in helping in the allied war effort. Nutrition was also emphasized in connection to staying healthy in order to contribute to production. The message of frugality in one's eating became not only a national goal but an aspect of life for many that had a lasting effect on the Depression era generation.

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition.

  • 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.
