Richardson Printing Co., for the Metropolitan Canvass Committee / Liberty Loan Committee, c. 1918. Bold artwork and graphics. The war efforts were expensive and money was needed to support them.

Decades old conservation linen backing. Light age toning. Some minor chips and tears along top border, minor creasing in bottom 3". Very good condition.
