Make Your Money Work Too - Buy War Savings CertificatesCharles Burton
An original National War Savings Committee poster, Make Your Money Work Too - Buy War Savings Certificates, by Charles Burton, 1919. The main image depicts a farmworker ploughing with a tractor (possibly an International Titan), in the direction of a solidly built red roofed farmhouse. The whole is meant to convey a sense of prosperity and trust in the future. War Savings Certificates had been introduced in 1916 to raise money for the war effort, but were retained by the government after 1918 and later renamed National Saving Certificates.
