VISIT OUR CURRENT EXHIBIT
World War I posters - History Gallery, 2nd floor, Milton Public Library
During World War I the impact of posters as a means of communication cannot be understated. These visual works had the ability to inspire, inform, and persuade. One hundred years later, they retain their power to make you stop and stare. A selection of WWI posters from the Society’s collection are on exhibit.
