During the Second World War, the United States Government encouraged the citizenry to conserve and save their money to support the war effort. In the late 1930s, the Office of Defense transportation was created due to a freight car shortage; its purpose was to put "out of service" cars back into circulation and ensure that national transportation was under control. This poster was printed in 1944 and has a dual meaning; while troops were overseas fighting, citizens on the home front still had a duty to fight for the U.S. on American soil.

The War Advertising Council and the Office of War information strongly promoted War Bond buying. One tactic was emotional appeal, as war bonds did not offer a high rate of return. At the time, war bonds were advertised as a moral and financial obligation as an American citizen to contribute to the war effort and support soldiers overseas.

This poster was printed by the Office for Emergency Management and Office of War Information in the Domestic Operations branch of the Bureau of Special Services.

  • 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.
