America sends France its wishes of, "faith, courage, and patience" across the Atlantic in this rare WWI poster. Uncle Sam looks over the ocean, his eyes downcast and woeful as his wishes spread towards France in red and white stripe beacons of hope. In the foreground, the brutal reality of wartime France is on display; a woman draped in the French flag weeps over a tombstone, as a bloody battle unfolds. It is likely she is Marianne, the personification of France (as Uncle Sam is to America).

The Harriman National Bank was formed in 1911 and was run by Joseph Wright Harriman, a descendant of a railroad tycoon who went on to be convicted of fraud after the stock market crash of 1929. The bank folded around the same time, in 1934.

  • 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.
