Office of War Information, 1943. Poster. Item #78833
22-1/4 by 16 inches. OWI Poster no. 55. Poster depicting a woman in a headscarf and uniform operates a machine, perhaps a lathe. Despite the vast number of posters issued by government agencies during the Second World War, this is one of the few depicting women doing traditionally male jobs, like manufacturing. Not much has been written about the artist, but he produced many magazine and advertising illustrations. Small bit of loss to one corner, else a fine, bright example. Folded twice, for mailing, as issued. Laid down on a stiff, archival paper backing. [JSP02; JSP04].
