H'ya Soldier! c. 1942

 A boost to soldier morale during WWII. I'm guessing these cards were produced quickly in the early stages of the war, as the nation mobilized for action overseas. The setting is outside a theater, with the sign "Coming Soon," which could apply to the show and American involvement. Love the little fire hydrant. Inside, cartoon versions of the Axis powers get their comeuppance.

  1. Wow, I've seen WWII propaganda caricatures, but never on a card like this. What a great collector's item.
