Pamiątka z USA – “Poster from the U.S.” – poświęcony pomocy Amerykanów Polsce podczas I Wojny Światowej
Hi Tad and everyone on the forum,
I believe this poster was used in the U.S. to raise funds for supporting Poland during World War I. You can see at the bottom left that a one dollar donation was given, and the contributor received a stamp to put on the poster. The intention must have been to put stamps all around the perimeter of the picture, which at $20 total would have been a significant contribution in those years.
Has anyone ever seen a poster like this one? Do you know what organization was collecting the money?
Thank you dear friend Sue again!,
I can not recognise this uniform, maybe it could be a HALLER’s ARMY uniform, but I could try to translate all words from this invaluable historical memento of the common history and heritage of the U.S.A. and Poland, sent by you and placed by us at our webgallery “Narodowa GA.PA”:
WYDZIAL NARODOWY POLSKI
National Branch of Poland
PAMIATKA ZLOZONEJ NA SKARB NARODOWY DANINY
The memento of the donation given to the national Treasury
and please note this wonderful sentence in the middle of this poster, going with a thunder:
“To Dla Polski”
This is for Poland!
With cordial greetings,
Tad – Tadeusz
