Title: Man the ships! Enroll here for the Merchant Marine
Artist: James Daugherty
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, few types were made.
Condition: B+, linen mounted, fine color, trace of folds before mounting.
