From July 16-19, 1942, members of the Brotherhood of Railway, Steamship Clerks, Freight Handlers, Express and Employees gathered in Denver, Colorado, to conduct the business of their union. Sometime during that week, convention delegates gathered in front of their hotel for a group photo.
The "France Forever" poster behind the unionists reveals just where America was in the war: a few months post Pearl Harbor, France fully in the hands of the Germans (since 1940), with victory still years away.
This poster, along with others that would be produced by the government in the coming months and years, would serve to mobilize the American public in the fight against fascism.
