    Blood or Bread (Lot of 3) 28.5" x 21" Artist: Raleigh. Another gripping image by Henry Raleigh, who with his use of dark shades of brown and jagged edges, creates scenes of great intensity with an air of simplicity. A bare-chested soldier holds his wounded comrade aloft as we are asked to waste not, so that the troops will have enough. A macabre image for its time, and one you cannot afford to miss owning!

    Poster 1-Good; severe tear and major tear on upper edge, dirt residue on bottom edge, low grade stock paper is beginning to yellow.
    Poster 2-Fine, one major tear on top edge.
    Poster 3-Fair; cockling from severe fold memory, major tears on upper edge down into the graphic, upper right corner is torn and wrinkled severely, paper is yellowing.
