This beautiful poster was created by the artist Edward McCandlish for the Veterans of Foreign Wars shortly after the end of WWI. McCandlish imagery includes American fighting men from the Navy, Army and Marine Corps to emphasize the V.F.W. mission to serve veterans from all branches of the United States military. The lower margin indicates the printer’s mark “American Lithographic Co., N.Y.”
This poster is an antique original in excellent condition with just some modest toning and small nick on the margin near the upper right hand corner. It doesn’t look like this poster was ever hung or used and overall condition is excellent.
