We only sell Original Vintage Advertising Posters, we do not sell reproductions. This Vintage Poster comes with a Certificate of Authenticity upon purchase!

This poster was extremely effective in underscoring the masculinity of serving for the Navy during WWI. The poster also appeared as a recruiting poster for the Coast Guard in different colors.

The model used was Mrs. E. LeRoy Finch, and she was definitely a woman worth fighting for. Some would say she’s “beautifully patriotic”.

She’s wearing a white navy hat, a sexy blue uniform, and all lettering in red, white & blue.

This poster appeared at 62 Cannon St. Bridgeport, CT. The name of the Officer is stamped at the bottom. This is an extremely rare version, because of the aforementioned stamp.
