More Enlist Posters

These are more from the collection of WWl posters in the Vet's Centre at Sunnybrook. I must get the name of the person who donated the collection.

they are neat.

Very interesting that people have saved these over the years!

These must be very hard to come by after all the intervening years. I notice none of them speak of the likely event the men will never come back home again.

These posters have been around for a very long time. A bit of history preserved.

These WW II posters are great slices of history from a time when countries went to war with a sense of justice. It was a more simple time of good and evil. Fine post of Signs, Signs.

Super cool!

William Kendall said...

They certainly do stand out. There's a veteran's home here- I wonder if they've got some of this there as well.

A wonderful collection; it makes sense to donate such things (or at least loan them) to Museums where many more people can learn from them.

Quite interesting to see!

Revrunner said...

Powerful incentives, I'd say, especially considering the age.

Very cool. I like the Take up the sword of justice one!

Lois said...

Interesting to see. I particularly like the one on the bottom left with the "sword of justice".

I don't think I have seen a war enlistment poster that refers to 'Remember Belgium.'

Andy said...

They are real collectors items.

Stephanie said...

Cool finds!

Tony McGurk said...

Beautifully preserved historical posters. Definite collectors items.

I'm glad some people keep old things. I wonder what kinds of artifacts will be on display from our generation? Old iphones and tablets?

Imagine all those young men seeing those posters and rushing excitedly to enlist.. horrific really.

Impressive voices from another era...

Calling by from the Signs meme, always interesting to see this sort of old memorabilia.

Jack said...

Posters were the way to get the word out in the days before radio, TV and internet.

We have the 'remember Belgium' one as a 'fridge magnet...

You know how I feel about the soldiers of WWI and especially the ones from Canada in Belgium because it was there that I stayed that week. Do you have a PC or a Mac. I have a wonderful CD up in a box of CD’s that I would love to send you with all photos of men and scenes from WWI. A Canadian and his wife made it, and it was on my computer at work. Now the I am retired and at home, all we have are Mac’s so I cannot see it. It needs a good home and I think it would love to go to your house. My email is:
genier39atgmaildotcom. I dragged out that big box last night for some reason and it is full of old cd’s. I know that one has to be in there. genie
