    Description

    Remember The First Thrill Of American Liberty. 30" x 20" Artist: unsigned. Printed for the Second Liberty Loan of 1917. This poster is one of several which targets immigrants from Europe as potential bond buyers. Thousands of immigrants had arrived in the United States around the turn of the century and beyond. They now represented a large population which could be addressed and called upon as one. This poster urges them to remember their first moments on American waters, seeing the statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. A powerful image, fit for any collection!

    Condition-Good; 3-4 minor tears on top edge which extend into the graphic, bottom edge has dirt stains and residue present, paper is yellowing but is not yet brittle.
