During the '30s, the government created the Works Project Administration (WPA) which provided thousands of jobs under "The New Deal." The arts were highly encouraged as was supporting the war effort through farming, victory gardens and preserving food for the troops.

The distinctive art style of the WPA posters makes them instantly recognizable, and I think they make terrific decoration for any vintage kitchen. I’ve perused the Library of Congress' files and pulled some of my (rights-free) favorites which I will post here once in a while for you to peruse. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into the past as much as I do.
