Scope and content

Sub-series consists of posters and original designs for posters issued during the First World War by the Canadian government, as well as by the governments of Great Britain, France, Belgium, Russia, Italy, the United States, Ireland, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Hungary, Germany, Austria, and other countries. The vast majority of the posters are propaganda or Victory Loan campaign posters, but there are smaller numbers of recruiting posters, mostly, in the case of Canada, non-visual placard type posters, as well as many food conservation posters. Works are mostly done by unidentified artists. See the Division of Prints and Drawings Memoranda Book 1927-1945 for notes on the use of some of this material during World War II.
