    They are Experts... Derogatory Poster Lot (Lot of 2) 28"x 21" Artist: unsigned. This lot of two posters features two very unflattering messages about minorities. One features an Asian man and an African-American man doing laundry; the poster states, "They are experts at laundering, but you wouldn't want them lighting your factory." The other poster follows a similar pattern and contains an equally derogatory message. These posters do not show any organization or affiliation. They must have been privately printed for a local company or business. An interesting lot which marks a time of intolerance and a society which had not yet embraced each other as equals. A unique lot!

    Poster 1-Fair; torn nearly 100% of the way through the poster along the y-axis, deep crease on the x-axis at 0 degrees.
    Poster 2-Good; torn 100% of the way through the poster along y-axis. Both posters are torn cleanly and can be mended to make fine display pieces.
