Original Recruiting poster from World War 1 showing 2 marines flagging down a ship. On the left and right hand side are smaller black and white photographs of Marines on duty in different scenarios. The color graphic was designed by artist J.C. Leyendecker, who rivaled Norman Rockwell as a contributor to Saturday Evening Post magazine.
This poster has been archivally mounted on linen and restored.

When framing an image such as this with vibrant colors you should always select OP3 museum grade 98.5 plexiglas to protect your original vintage poster.
