Ice Cream Poster

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | August 23, 2021

Today's Item of the Day is a poster for Crescent Registered Pasteurized Ice Cream.
This is a poster that we can really get behind - ice cream is essential! 
Maybe even more surprising than its message is that it was created during World War I (1914 - 1918)!  It’s very different from most posters of that era.
