This poster is meant to encourage participation and patriotism in the war effort during World War II. There were different types of government rationing during World War II. One type was called selective rationing, where rationed goods were evenly distributed, giving all citizens an opportunity to purchase set amounts of certain goods. This applied to items such as sugar, meat, butter and shoes. Individuals were required to use ration stamps issued by the government along with money to purchase such goods. The home front pledge was meant to inspire citizens to fight alongside the troops on the home front.

"By keeping the Home Front Pledge you're being true to the gallant American men fighting for your freedom. You're helping to keep our food-shared fairly- shared equally by the rich and the poor. You're helping to keep food prices within the reach of all- families living on a private's allotment- widows making out on insurance pensions" - The Home Front Pledge

Frederick G. Cooper enjoyed a career as one of America's foremost illustrators in the first quarter of the 20th. Century. His "bighead" cartoon characters were seen constantly through out the teens, 20's & 30's in many of the most popular magazines of the day. He did ads for Westinghouse, posters for the War Department, illustrated books and magazines articles and designed alphabets.

  • 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.
