This unique vintage poster was created between 1914-18, during World War I. The slogan "Waste not, Want not, Prepare for Winter" takes viewers back in time to an era when even civilians were directly impacted by war in their everyday lives. The push to ensure no wasted food was common during wartime when supplies became more scarce. This version of the poster features a blue background, an alternative to the black background version we also have available.

The poster encourages viewers to "save perishable foods by preserving now", and depicts an older woman teaching a younger woman about canning foods. This unique poster had gathered its fair share of dust, dirt, and damage over the last century. Our skilled team has digitally restored it to remove these imperfections and bring it back to its original, pristine condition.

Vintage posters were not made in standard sizes, so unfortunately we aren't able to offer all of our posters in the exact same sizes. In an effort to create a standard system, the sizing for our posters is based on the long dimension of each image. While the short dimensions will vary, you can order multiple prints with the same long dimension to create a uniform look when displaying your prints.
