About the collection

Many of the posters have no actual date present but the themes represented clearly express propagandistic messages of the Second World War and early Cold War period. 

The primary focus is on the Home Front and the common themes include encouraging civilians to salvage materials for the war effort, saving energy, growing your own food and the importance of the Home Front.
