WWI U.S. Air Service Recruiting Poster "Over There Skilled Workers on the Ground in the Air Service". Approximately 30" x 33 ½" framed. Artist: Louis Fancher. An evocative image of a doughboy, wrench in hand, standing in front of a hangar of military biplanes. The poster seeks recruits for skilled trades including motorcyclists, chauffeurs, wood workers, auto mechanics and more. The poster is stamped "Army Recruiting Station 1705 Lawrence Street Denver, Colorado". Of particular interest is the fact that the "T" in "There" has been painted out leaving only "here", presumably done to recognize the continuing need for men stateside in the fledgling Air Service in the immediate post-war years. The poster has a few fold creases and wrinkles but is in otherwise very good condition.
