Item : Original Great War WWI World War 1 Marine Recruiting Poster. Description : A plain clothed man, dropping his hat and removing his suit coat preparing to fight after reading the headline in a newspaper Huns Kill Women and Children! The title says TELL THAT TO THE MARINES!
At 24 East 23rd Street (assumption NY recruiting office). Interesting Observation : The artist is known for his Uncle Sam posters and, that he used his own image, aged, to portray Uncle Sam. The man in this poster bears a striking resemblance to a 1915 photograph of James Montgomery Flagg by Arnold Genthe.
Check out the copy of the photo and decide for yourself. Condition : This antique recruitment poster is in good condition. The paper has a significant amount of foxing that can be repaired. It also has age discoloration. There are no tears in the main poster, however there are a few small tears and a small area of missing paper outside of the red and blue border.
There are several areas of creasing in the poster - one is a series of creases going across the knees (approx 1 in length) with a longer single crease going down the left leg from knee to hat. There are also a series of creases across the chest area. All the creases are minor and do not impact the stability of the paper. All colors are bright and wording is legible.
