    Description

    William Jennings Bryan: "Down With The Trusts" Poster. 21 ¼" x 30" (sight) and 28 ¼" x 38 ¼" overall. Antitrust poster from 1900, with each of the trusts listed and depicted along the bottom. While the main focus of Bryan's 1900 campaign was anti-imperialism, many in the Democratic party felt that trusts were a growing issue that needed to be tackled. The poster issued a grim reminder about the trusts, promising, "The trusts will force the people to make good to them after the election." Overall, this piece is in fine condition with a singular horizontal crease down the middle and a few edge tears.
