Story Eighty-Six : War Posters

ww2carelesstalktragedy1

Canadian war posters during World War II were works of art, both colourful and dramatic They were distributed widely in movie houses, buses, billboards, etc Providing an insight in the attitude of the times

Produced by the Bureau of Public Information and the Wartime Information Board (WIB),

The slideshow is complimented by the  famous  and inspiring radio broadcast by PM Winston Churchill to inspire the English listeners.  Interesting his  comment of the Empire(AKA Canada) “supported by the English Navy”  will come to the rescue… just in case.
