This vintage original WWII poster was issued by the Office of War Information as OWI Poster No. 77 in 1943. This poster urges American’s to “Can All You Can” and features a bounty of fresh vegetables above the tagline “It’s A Real War Job!”.
The USDA’s Victory Garden program begun during WWI and relaunched for WWII was a major success on the home front that saw millions of Americans growing and canning their own vegetables. This poster is vintage original folded as issued with just light handling wear and modest toning from age. The poster has a small nick off the margin on the top edge near the upper right hand corner and a brief pencil mark on verso. The tape has no tape or pinholes and doesn't look like it was ever used. Overall condition is excellent. This poster was issued folded and ships that way.
