This First World War poster was created by the United States Food Administration to advocate for conservation of food resources for overseas allies and encourage the idea of eating more locally grown vegetables and fruits. It depicts two soldiers in full gear running through snow with their bayonets drawn. The message is clear that the troops need all their strength from their food supplies to wing their battles. Conservation of food on the home front was essential for having adequate supplies for the soldiers overseas.

The poster was created by Harvey Dunn (1884-1952) who was one of 7 poster artists who were designated by General George Pershing to have free access to the troops on the front lines of battle. The goal was to realize the most accurate depictions of the fighting soldiers and Dunn accomplished this in this image.

  • 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.
