[More Uncle Pictures]

This poster shows Uncle Sam proffering Liberty Bonds, or shackles inscribed Prussia. The image is captioned, "Bonds - which? ".  The idea is that the viewer is faced with a choice . . . to support US liberty bonds, or to face bondage by the Prussians.  This was one of a series of Uncle Sam Patriotic posters from World War 1. Originally published in The New York Evening Post.

The poster was created in 1917.
