YES!! This is the original poster!!!
This poster has been preserved by being shrink-wrapped in cellophane on poster board. The reflections in the picture are from the cellophane. As you can see is the pictures there appears to be two pieces of tape on the poster (store tape?) from being placed on display.
This is a very well designed image using the visual appeal of the colorful and abundant produce to promote conservation on the part of the people on the home front. The message is bold and clear - Eat Less so that we can Send More to Europe or they will Starve. During the period of World War I there was an ongoing famine in many parts of Europe as a result of the protracted fighting and depleted labor force to serve the farms. In addition, soldiers were often malnourished as well. This graphic explicitly gets its message across by showing the domestic abundance of produce and declaring that we should all eat less to send the excess to Europe.
Ships only to U.S. mainland. Additional photos upon request.
This poster is available for local pickup and will deliver to within 30 miles of Washington, DC.
