The well known McClelland Barclay's poster demonstrates the magical powers of recycling. The artist portrays a machinegun feeding tomato soup cans into a water-cooled machine gun, the whole operation enabled by a thoughtful housewife. See also the World War I War Saving Stamps poster Help Them by Emerson for the genesis of the transformative design. Barclay handles color masterfully. 32x25 near mint, conservation backed.
