During World War II, the U.S. Government aggressively asked Americans to contribute to the war effort through recycling measures such as saving cans. A woman's arm holding a tomato can appears on the bottom right side of the poster. The can image is repeated and runs into the vintage poster image. As the cans get smaller, they change into a chain of bullets that a soldier is feeding into his gun. There are two soldiers in the image, one with a machine gun and a large blast of fire. The original World War 2 posters were folded and mailed out across the United States. These fold marks have been restored during linen backing. WW2 posters were printed on wood pulp paper because they were less expensive, and thus, most of them were destroyed over time.
