Random Objects | Post Office Posters

I wanted to share this with you because I thought it was such an oddity when I found it at the little antique store here in Nelson. I think it is a poster for Canada Post probably designed and printed in the late 1940s. It is screen printed onto a hard board and I think it's quite unusual and funny. I can't imagine anyone at Canada Post approving such a graphic for their walls these days - they are a rather conservative bunch!

LOVE THESE! You have such a knack for finding great historical graphics Fiona. I'll definitely have to look into these posters (even though I'd bet the USPS never did anything this cool either). They'd be perfect for a stationers office!

Thanks Erin - we actually bought 10 of these - all different! Aren't they fun? Doug loves them he has them propped up all over his studio!
