This is another restored poster from the iconic WPA era. The original was completed sometime in the 1930s under the New Deal WPA program which was an attempt to put Americans back to work, including artists, and artisans.

The poster features a Cardinal on a branch, with the saying “Protect Our Birds”. The sponsor was the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

It is a simple, yet powerful, conservation poster, that is still relevant today. Birds are very special to me since I see them almost every day, when I take my daily walks. They are my trusted companions.
