LET US GO FORWARD TOGETHER - An original wartime print of one of Britain's most iconic propaganda posters of the Second World War, prominently featuring Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill and one of his most oft-repeated phrases
London: Printed for H. M. Stationery Office by J. Weiner Ltd., 1940. This original wartime print of one of the most iconic British propaganda posters of the Second World War features Winston S. Churchill in front of a background of tanks and bombers with the words “LET US GO FORWARD TOGETHER”. The bottom right margin reads “PRINTED FOR H.M. STATIONERY OFFICE BY J. WEINER LTD., LONDON, W.C.1. 51-165.” This 30 x 20 inch (76.2 x 50.8 cm) poster is behind UV filtering acrylic in a handsome 33.5 x 23.75 inch (85.1 x 60.3 cm) brown and black stained wood frame. Though undated, this poster is certainly wartime; London's Victoria and Albert Museum rather vaguely dates their identical example 1939-1945, but Douglas Hall (Churchilliana, p.119) more precisely dates this poster to 1940. Condition is very good, particularly so considering the age and perishability of this wartime artifact. At some point in its long life this poster was folded – plausibly when originally distributed - and a vertical crease and four horizontal creases are visible. At the corner of the lowest fold line, just to the right of the T in “LET”, a small hole was worn. The color remains strong and the paper bright with only a hint of light overall toning. This poster is entirely original and free of restoration. We will ship this large, framed item at cost. During his two-thirds of a century of public life Churchill delivered speeches whose incisive wit, artful cadence, stinging criticism, stirring sentiment, and resolute defiance still echo. History best remembers Churchill for his indispensable leadership … [Click Below for Full Description]
