    Carry On- Women Of America 25" x 19" Artist: unsigned. This poster is one of the many black and white charcoal drawing style posters printed to promote industrial matters such as worker morale and cooperation. This one focuses on bringing women into the workplace and teaching them a trade. The workforce was greatly depleted due to the fact that all the men had gone off to war; so in many cases business found themselves seeking able brain and bodied women to take up the reins and work. This poster promises good, tasteful, and interesting jobs for women who wish to help the soldiers. It even states that women will help win the war for America, by giving their strength and time to the work force. A powerful message, a wonderful poster for any collector of women's war posters or war posters in general!

    Condition-Fine; cockling from severe fold memory, dirt residue and stains on upper edge, some light creasing.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
