This dramatic and interestingly designed poster highlights the importance of ride sharing to reduce the need for new tires, as rubber was in high demand during the war. It was all part of an effort to involve citizens in the war effort. This was their opportunity to pitch in and help the national cause at a local level. During both of the World Wars, the idea that an individual could make a difference with their efforts was nurtured and developed. During WWII, posters played an important role in developing a sense of motivation and patriotism.

Weimer Pursell (1906-1974) was as an illustrator for Life, Esquire, and Forbes magazines, among many others. In posters, he produced American Art Deco style designs for Coca-Cola, American Airlines, Standard Oil, the Chicago World's Fair and more, although his work is extremely hard to find on the market today.

  • 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.
