Rowland Hilder (1905-1993)
To Enjoy The Fruits of Victory – Save Now

Original Vintage Poster

75x50cm
c.1945

During the war the general public were encouraged to save their money. There was a shortage of goods to buy, and the population was being paid for overtime so had money to spare. These twin inflationary pressures were a great worry for the government so a huge poster campaign was launched to persuade the population to save their money. Best of all, the money could be lent to the Government which would spend it on war material. Faced with these two patriotic incentives to save the campaign was a huge success.
