R. H.Porteus: Women! Help America's Sons Win the War 1917.  Porteus' Liberty Loan poster appeals directly to women for funds. The artist portrays a sweet grandmother separated by a flag drawn back to reveal scenes of carnage on land and sea. This is the only American poster asking women to buy liberty bonds. All other women oriented posters suggest less expensive War Savings Stamps that only cost 25 cents each. 30x20 near mint, conservation backed.
