WWII USA Strong in the Strength of the Lord Poster

£200.00




The “Strong in the strength of the Lord” poster was published in the U.S. during WWII, to foster greater cooperation between different segments of society, in this case, a woman, a factory worker and a soldier, all who played a key part in the U.S. war effort.

The 3 arms held aloft is more reminiscent of the Nazi or Communist propaganda posters of the time. The quote in the poster was taken from a speech made by vice-President Henry Wallace and the full text reads “Strong in the strength of the Lord. We who fight in the people’s cause-we will never stop until that cause is won.”

The poster was designed by David Stone Martin who was well known for his Jazz album illustrations. On the bottom is written: OWI Poster Number: 8 - U.S. Government Printing Office: 1942-O-488341. The condition is good except for a few small edge tears. The poster has been mounted and covered in protective transparent cellophane.
