The image of the "Bloodthirsty Hun" was one of the major themes in American World War I propaganda posters. Here, one such German soldier breaks into our home, fiercely looking right into our eyes. The message here is clear - buying war savings stamps directly protects the American public from a German invasion. This is a rare poster.

William Addison Ireland (1880-1935) was better known by his nickname, Billy Ireland. He was a hometown hero in Columbus, Ohio where he created and ran his own comic strip, The Passing Show in The Columbus Dispatch from 1908 until his passing in 1935. This comic strip was his claim to fame, and this poster is the only war image we were able to locate by him.

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. There are minor traces of soiling in the margins that do not affect the image. 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.
