This is an original, NOT a reproduction – I bought it straight off the wall at the Aaron Carlson Architectural Millwork Company in NE Minneapolis (long since closed). It hung on the wall leading up to the main offices since the 1960s, and looks like it had been in storage (folded very light crease marks) up until being displayed there. It was professionally framed with a matching wood frame.

The condition is near mint, the colors are extremely vibrant, I couldn’t find much on it on eBay or the Internet, the only other picture by the artist I could find was his famous World War II ‘Flying Fortress’ poster with one selling an auction almost double the pre-auction estimate price of $700 - $1000 (sold for $1,920).


I did find one that sold auction, but it did not say how much it sold for, this is what the auction listing said about the print:

Date: 1943
Artist: Winslow, Earle B.
Size (in): 40” x 28.5”
Size (cm): 101.5 x 72.5
Linen backed: Yes

This vintage original and rare WWII poster was created by the artist Earle B. Winslow to help boost morale in the lumber and forest products industries that provided essential war materiel. American soldiers build a pontoon bridge over a river in the Pacific theater as enemy shells explode nearby and the commander shouts “Keep That Lumber Coming!”. The US Army insignia appears in the lower right hand corner of the poster. This rare poster was issued in the lumber producing areas of the country only and is next to impossible to find.

$725 cash, Venmo, PayPal, or check with proper ID. This would be a Crown Jewel in anyone’s World War II poster collection!
