Christy: Clear the Way 1918.



Howard Chandler Christy: Clear the Way 1918. Weapons purchased with money raised from bond sales kept the sea lanes open.  Lovely Christy miss is pictured using  one hand to point to the poster’s message and the other to point to a gun crew engaging a U-boat.  Their aim must have been true; not one troop transport was lost to enemy action. 30×20 near mint, conservation backed.
