Item Number: 5654

Title: Man the ships! Enroll here for the Merchant Marine

Artist: James Daugherty

Size: 20"x30"

Comments: Something very unusual in US WWI posters....the famous US Shipping Board poster "The Ships are Coming" was also used for Merchant Marine recruiting by attaching a banner to the lower section below the image. First time I have had this variant. Merchant Marine recruiting posters from WWI are rarely seen, very few styles were made.

Price: $750

Condition: B+, linen mounted, fine color, trace of folds before mounting.
