Victory Bonds

When visiting Fort York I toured the inside of the visitor's centre too and they have a wonderful collection of old posters and signs on display. I particularly liked these ads for buying Victory Bonds.

I just heard a story on the news this morning about England just now paying off the war bonds for WW1.

These go back to my childhood. I was too young to fight in WWII, but I do remember the posters and rationing coupons, etc.

I'd enjoy Fort York at lot!

Nice poster design.

Great colours in these signs. Strange how so many of these old war posters feature a certain dusky yellow.

I love to look at the old posters. Most of them (like these) are quite attractive.

Cool posters!

I would love this! The ceilings in Florida are high, so large-scale vintage posters work nicely. I have 1920s art deco travel posters from Italy (2), Egypt, France and South Africa on the walls.
