A family looks on as their loved one marches away to join the War Effort, in this rarer WWI poster by Franklin Booth (1874 - 1948).

On April 24th 1917, just 18 days after the US joining WWI officially, Congress authorized the Secretary of the Treasury to issue bonds of the United States to the extent of $5,000,000,000. Twelve committees were created, one for every Federal Reserve District. These committees were entrusted with the work of selling the bonds in their respective districts. Every city, town and village had its own Liberty Loan Committee as part of the war effort.

Buying bonds soon became a patriotic duty and a reason for American pride. You were given buttons to wear when you bought your bonds, so you could show your patriotism. The posters promoting the Liberty Bonds were mainly based in these ideas of patriotism, pride and freedom.

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in very good condition. There is minor chipping in the margin, and a small stain is present in the top left corner. Please inspect the photo for more details. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

  • 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.
