WWI U.S. Navy Recruiting Poster 'I Wish I Were a Man'

WWI U.S. Navy Recruiting Poster 'I Wish I Were a Man'

This Navy Recruiting Poster by artist Howard Chandler Christy was issued in 1917. It's message is definitely not "politically correct" today but that didn't stop it from being a very popular poster in its time.

The bottom line of the poster is printed separately for the local recruiting office. This one probably refers to the Otis Building on Watertown Square in Watertown, MA.
