Keep "Old Man Winter" Out: Keep Warm with Storm Windows!

Notes: A World War Two-era homefront poster from private industry urging compliance with federal energy conservation goals through the purchase of consumer products (i.e., storm windows).

Compared to official government posters, business propaganda posters are rather scarce. This private poster, compared to official US posters, is also much more sexist than government-issued pieces. The central image shows a rear view of a woman in a suggestive pose bending at the waist while wearing a short skirt. Old man winter futilely blows cold air outside her window. A toddler crouches at her feet.

13-1/2 by 20 inches.

Edition + Condition: Near fine. Never folded. Ships flat. This is an original World War II poster, not a reproduction.

Publication: (N.-pl.): Sponsored by Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Company in Cooperation with the U.S. Government, (ca. 1944).
