Between 1936 and 1943 the Work Projects Administration (WPA), about 2,000 posters were designed to promote the arts, community activities, and used for education. The Library of Congress has digitized 907 of these posters. The one below is one of our favorites – the Navy asks to borrow your binoculars to help prevent attacks at sea.
