This vintage original WWII era poster was issued by the Camp Fire Girls of America. A young lady strikes a resolute pose as she looks toward the poster’s tag line “Keep Faith With Youth” with an American flag forming the background of the image. A photo credit to Oberlin College graduate and photographer Ruth Nichols is print just below the image. This poster isn’t dated but shows the Camp Fire Girls National Headquarters address as 88 Lexington Avenue in New York City which would date it sometime after early 1939 when the organization moved that address.
This poster is lightly used with pinholes on the corners, light handling wear and a single lateral fold. Overall condition is very good.
