With American entry into the war, food required to fuel the armed forces created a need for rationing on the home-front. The poster highlights the benefit of maintaining a garden as a way to preserve one's food rations for more limited items like meat. The artwork shows the delicious abundance a Victory Garden can yield. The concept of food as a weapon was carried through in many similarly themed posters that demonstrated the conservation of home-grown and canned foods, the repurposing of leftovers, or the benefits of healthy eating.

The U.S. Government encouraged home canning of vegetables and fruits and provided information to help the public. Home-canned goods were exempt from rationing because they provided relief from farmer produce intended for the military.

Hubert Morely (1888-1951) was an American illustrator who served in WWI before his formal education in fine art. He dedicated the WWII years of his life to creating posters for the US Government.

  • 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.
