we want you

There’s a World War I Posters exhibit on at the Boston Antheum, which looks like a really old library with a few modern books which is also a nice little art gallery. Well worth the $5 donation on admission.

The different ways in which governments around the world convinced citizens to support the war was interesting to see because I had just imagined a lot of posters calling for everyone to join the army. For example they were asking for people to donate eyeglasses for binoculars and in return they would get some money and the glasses would be returned after the war.
