This vintage original WWII poster was issued by the Office of War Information as OWI Poster No. 39. This poster was targeted at all Americans serving on the Home Front and encourages thrift by reminding the viewer to – Use It Up, Wear It Out, Make It Do! A man bends over to fix his lawnmower while his wife mends a hole in the seat of his trousers above the poster’s tag line – Our Labor And Our Goods Are Fighting.
This poster is folded as issued with light handling wear and some toning from age. The poster shows slight ghosting, or light ink transfer from being folded, along the top quarter of the poster. Overall condition is very good for this vintage original. This poster ships folded as issued.
