About The Poster: This American WWII poster, designed by Harold Von Schmidt in 1944, pleads with the viewer to be wary of the gas they are consuming. An injured soldier glares out of the poster as if to personally engage each viewer. The text asks, Have you really tried to save gas by getting into a car club? The implications being that a shortage of goods in the USA was also affecting the soldiers overseas. By joining a carpool club, each American citizen could feel as if they were making a difference and helping the American troops. Linen backed and in excellent condition.
