Postwar Poster Art (10 of 10 Posters)

These posters reflect Postwar life from parades to veterans’ organizations to civilian training camps. Many soldiers coming home were greeted with parades and gratitude for their service, however, they had to rely on the various veterans’ organizations for help in transitioning back to their lives as there was no government agency charged with handling postwar issues this at this time.

We have used the book, “World War I Posters” by Gary A. Borkan to create a catalog identification system for all of the posters in the Hunter Collection. Each poster is identified by the page number in the book, and a letter (A, B or C) for the position from left to right on a given page in the book. Poster IDs with letters G or greater are not found in the Borkan book.
