Beneker: The Past is Behind Us 1918.



Beneker The Past is Behind Us 1918. Meticulous poster with a hopeful theme. A dignified doughboy and his alter ego, a worker toting a sledge hammer, are shown shaking hands as they resolve “let us all strive to make the future better and brighter than the past ever was.” Poster issued by the Department of Labor. Rare. 20×15 near mint, conservation backed.
