Howard Chandler Christy produced many of the best known and most beloved posters of the First World War era including this “Americans All” beauty created to support the fifth and final of the Liberty Loans, the Victory Liberty Loan. This stirring poster reminds the viewer that patriotism is a universal value shared by all Americans regardless of national origin, religion, creed or whatever other differences may exist. The poster lists 14 surnames all of different origin including French, Polish, Spanish, Jewish, Czech, English, Irish, Polish, Italian, Greek, Russian and others which as “Americans All” must bear the burden of supporting the Victory Liberty Loan campaign to their utmost. A Christy Girl wraps herself in Old Glory and extends the Laurel Wreath as a symbol of triumph.
This is an unrestored poster in very good condition. The poster has a small half inch notch off the bottom edge and a tear of about two inches without loss on the lower edge. The poster has a couple short quarter inch edge tears and light handling wear and is in very good condition overall. This beautiful poster is ready to display as is or could be restored to "like new" appearance with basic linen backing.
