GEE!! I WISH I WERE A MAN / I'D JOIN THE NAVY. 1918.
40 3/4x26 1/2 inches, 103 1/2x67 1/4 cm. Condition B: replaced losses, repaired tears, extensive creases and foxing in margins and image. Framed.
One of two posters by Christy featuring this particular beauty (see previous lot). This one has a narrower focus, seeking recruits for just the Navy, with a more blatant challenge to the public's masculinity, "Be a Man and Do It!"
