(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph Public Library continued their History Speaks presentation series Saturday morning. This month's topic discussed the library's vintage WWI victory poster collection.
In the early 2000's, during some renovations, the Public Library found several WWI posters in one of their vaults.
Local history librarian, Jennifer Sanders-Tutt spoke about the meaning, details and history of the posters.
Sanders-Tutt said the pictures on the posters date back to WWI era, but the actual posters found came from WWII.
"Seeing these that were used for WWI and then used again for WWII is really kind of a fascinating concept because now we just kind of have - if we need something new then we print it, so the idea of using these was really fascinating," Sanders-Tutt said.
The posters are on display at the East Hills Public Library.
The next History Speaks presentation will be held the first Saturday in December.
