Thanksgiving On My Mind

November 24, 2013 § Leave a comment

This is the week we are encouraged to eat more.  It’s a good time to remember the clarion call from World War One to think about others and conserve.

Collectible Poster

Original World War One Poster “Eat Less and Let Us Be Thankful”

There were food shortages in Europe during the war, and the America did a lionshare  to feed the Allied Nations overseas. The U.S. Food Administration was tasked with getting Americans to voluntarily curtail consumption, rather than to mandate restrictions. The population cut back on consumption of wheat, meat and eggs and to eat corn and barley instead. This original poster is part of our collection of American Military Posters and is signed A. Hendee. You can see our entire collection on the web at

Visit our shop in Berkeley, California at 2201 Fourth Street at the corner of Allston Way to see hundreds of posters from Europe and the United States, to design frames and to learn about the history of graphic art.
