Additional Information: Original poster: Shoot Ships to Germany. At this Shipyard are being built ships to carry to our men "Over There" -- Food, Clothing, and the Munitions of War. Without these ships our men will not have an equal chance to fight. The building of ships is more than a construction job-- it is our chance to win the war. He who gives to his work the best that is in him does his big as truly as the man who fights. Delays mean danger. Are you doing your bit? United States Shipping Board Emergency Fleet Corporation Publication Section, Philadelphia; Thomsen-Ellis Co. Baltimore-New York [between 1914 and 1918] Are you giving the best that is you to help your son, brother, or pal who is "OVER THERE"? United States Shipping Board Emergency Fleet Corporation. The United States Shipping Board and Emergency Fleet Corporation printed them. The war at sea was very vital during WWI, and the speed and quality at which our ships were produced were key to the success of the Navy and the Armed Services as a whole. America and Britain's naval power is evident from the statistics which show that throughout the entire war, Britain and America combined lost 181 ships of varying size and power to the Germans and Austrians who lost over 350. Posters like this helped to ensure the superior quality and functionality of the U.S. Navy! Adolphe Treidler was instrumental in the development of American commercial art. Treidler produced prints of urban life and one of his favorite themes was the construction of the city. His work show a command of drawing, in most instances derived from photographic reference, and a love of intricate surface pattern often from cast shadows. In the 1930s, Treidler was seen as the great American poster artist, to be mentioned in the same breath as the Beggarstaffs and Steinlen. After 1945, his reputation seemed to have declined except among graphic design enthusiasts and the admirers of Pierce Arrow cars with whom Treidler was most associated. In his later years he turned from commercial illustration to paint purely for his own pleasure. He died in 1982. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.
