    Workers Lend Your Strength. (Lot of 2) 27" x 20" Artist: Gil Spear. Printed for the Y.M.C.A. Another very popular image of a worker striking the same pose as a soldier. This very "vogue, strike a pose" scene is reminiscent of Sheridan's Rivets are Bayonets poster. The soldier charges forward carrying his bayonet a loft, while the Y.M.C.A. worker hoists an anvil in the same vigorous motion forward. These labor-themed posters harken to the WPA era to come. Do not let this pass you by!

    Condition: Poster 1- Good; major tears on top edge which extend into the graphic, hard and deep crease down the center along the x-axis, dirt stains and residue on lower edge.
    Poster 2- Fine; minor tears on top edge, dirt stains and residue on upper edge.
