Rivets are Bayonets -- Drive them home!
Published Thomsen-Ellis Co., Philadelphia
U. S. Shipping Board Emergency Fleet. This poster shows the American vision of co-operation between soldier and machinist. The soldier, surrounded by the flag, is making the same posture (stance) as the machinist. One of the most under rated design of the entire period, eloquently showing a ship riveter at work in front of a light purple silhouette, unfurled flags and yellow background. Perfectly balanced, extraordinarily handsome.
Rawls, p 76.
