Enlist "On Which Side of the Window are You?" World War I Poster, 1917

About

This colorful and dynamic poster was created by Laura Brey (1891-1980) in 1917. It urges that eligible men enlist in the WWI war effort. Center in the composition, a young man in a suit watches a column of soldiers march past his window. "The window - a poster within the poster - separates the bright male world of waving flags and marching columns from the darkened interior feminine space . . . [exploiting] men's anxiety over their masculinity by suggesting the effeminacy of the man who does not enlist" (Paret p. 56). The poster has been elegantly framed in a gold and black frame according to the highest preservation standards.
