Original Vintage WWI Food will Win the War Poster by Chambers c1917 Statue of Liberty
Item Details
Description
During World War I, posters were an essential way to get information out to the general population. This Original Vintage Poster was designed by Charles Chambers in 1917 for the World War I U.S. Food Administration. The image shows an iconic scene for many Americans - immigrants arriving to New York City, in awe of the Statue of Liberty. A red, white, and blue rainbow drives home the patriotic spirit of the design. This poster, clearly targeted to America's most recent citizens, urges the conservation of wheat.During the year 1917, President Woodrow Wilson created the U.S. Food Administration which operated offices in each state. The Administration was created to conserve and supply the distribution of food during the war, facilitate transport of food, and retain governmental authority over food through voluntary agreements. There were multiple efforts made during the war to conserve food. The USFA's first director was Herbert Hoover. It was he who coined the phrase that "Food, will win the war". With the support of the Council of Defense and other government organizations, he encouraged homeowners to sign pledges testifying to their efforts to conserve food. This resulted in 'Meatless Mondays', 'Porkless Saturdays' and so forth. The Food Administration prevailed by combining patriotism and advertising; they so even went so far as to create their own advertising division. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.
