VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY, HELP HARVEST

Help Harvest, US Crop Corps Poster
Another US Crop Corps poster.

This one seems to show a man woman and maybe teen (boy? girl? not sure) helping harvest for the war effort. This "corps" was set up because so many men were away for the war, that the country needed help harvesting its crops to supply food for home AND for the war effort.

Just love these old posters.  Such windows into our past, and a nice reminder of gardening and why it's so important to everyone.

Enjoy!
