British Empire propaganda posters
JOHN NUNNEY. Collection of seven British propaganda posters for the Empire (including two variants). Color lithographs printed by the Ministry of Information, London, 1939-1943. Signed in the plate. Some soiling, usual folds and marginal tears but no loss.

These beautifully printed propaganda pictures of native dock workers, rubber and groundnut harvesters, bauxite miners, oil-drilling crews and other laborers are reminiscent of the London Underground and Empire Marketing Board (EMB) posters. They were distributed to West Africa, West Indies, British Guiana and other Colonies to boost morale for the Empire's war effort. The variants differ in their headlines. "Tap For Victory" depicts the Short Sterling bomber that was flown by RAF squadrons from August 1939 until it was phased out of service by mid-1943.
