Additional Information: Original WW1 poster: The Red Cross is spending Ten Million Dollars a year to help the disabled. Ex-service man and his family. Annual roll call - Nov. 11th - 24th. Seeing all things with a mother's sixth sense that's blind to jealousy and meanness; helping the little home that's crushed beneath an iron hand by showing mercy in a healthy, human way; rebuilding it, in fact, with stone on stone and bringing warmth to hearts and hearths too long neglected. She's warming thousands, feeding thousands, healing thousands from her store; the Greatest Mother in the World- the Red Cross. Original poster issued by RED CROSS during World War 1 to elicit donations. The Red Cross is personified as a beautiful nurse cradling a sick soldier, who is laying in a cot. The soldier has been reduced to the size of an infant in her arms, This poster has been archival mounted on linen and restored.
