Poster encouraging coal miners has a unique feature - one of the five languages it features is German. During the war everything German was suspect. Indiana would not allow to German to be taught in schools. Frankfurters were renamed hot dogs, a term that stuck, Hamburgers were renamed victory burgers to no avail. The fact that German speaking miners were recruited testifies to the critical importance of the coal industry. America ran on coal. Uncommon. 30x20 near mint, conservation backed.
