INVEST IN THE VICTORY LIBERTY LOAN. They kept the sea lanes open. Original World War 1 stone lithograph created by the artist L. A. Shafer. Acid free archival linen backed original; ready to frame.
INVEST IN THE VICTORY LIBERTY LOAN is a great image of a submarine that surfaced; apparently damaged submarine (with people on top) in the ocean in front of a warship (flying the U.S. flag) which is protecting a passenger liner (at the left)]

This war effort poster is a symbol of the Navy's efforts to keep the oceans and sea lanes open, secure them for American troops and transportation ships with supplies to Europe during World war I. The German U-boats struck terror in all the convoys, but the propaganda campaigns would be a turnaround in the war by pulling in more money to the army and navy.

INVEST IN THE VICTORY LIBERTY LOAN was printed for the fifth and final Liberty Loan, known as the Victory Liberty Loan. A great naval image of three ships on the open sea, one with sailors manning a large gun. A must have for any collector!
