This patriotic lumber production poster shows U.S.P.T. boats attacking an enemy convoy. A screening enemy destroyer is exploding just behind the fleet patrol torpedo boat as ships of the destroyer's convoy are already burning in the distant background, ships that the steel "Goliath" was unable to protect from our country's swift little wooden "David." After demonstrating through image what one little PT boat can do, the poster's text implores the reader to produce more lumber for the cause, stating, "GIVE US LUMBER FOR MORE PT'S."

WWII Propaganda Posters Urging Conservation, Limitation, and Rationing by Americans on the home front to support the war effort: The United States did not suffer the same kinds of war deprivations that Europe did, although there were wartime shortages. During World War II it became necessary for the U.S. government to ration some foods, rubber, gas, and even clothing. Americans were asked to limit and conserve on many niceties and necessities.Wartime travel, materials and commodities conservation and rationing meant participation and sacrifices by all. Their efforts included scrap drives, taking factory jobs, goods donations and other similar projects to assist the troops on the front lines. Government-sponsored ads, radio shows, posters and pamphlet campaigns urged the American people to comply. With a sense of urgency, the campaigns appealed to America to contribute by whatever means they had, without complaint. These methods were a highly effective and one can gain a better understanding and imagine how and why they worked so well by viewing the historic conservation and rationing posters like this one displayed on this web page; this vintage poster sends a strong effective message.
