Women of Britain, Come Into the Factories
One day, I would like to get an original of this poster, as the postcard of this that I purchased from the Imperial War Museum formed the basis of my A-level research project, my degree project, and my PhD. One of the best places to purchase such posters, and they have a great visual catalogue of most of the images that they have sold, is Onslow’s, an auction house specialising in vintage posters (since 1984). See some of their past highlights, including a number of Second World War posters sold for significant sums of money!
