World War II Propaganda Posters Go Under The Hammer in Lewes, East Sussex, England

Posted by admin on Mar 14, 2010

A treasure trove of 200 World War II propaganda posters is being auctioned after being found in an old printing factory.

The posters, with famous slogans such as Keep Calm And Carry On and Careless Talk Costs Lives, were described by the Imperial War Museum as a ‘once in a lifetime’ find.

They lay gathering dust until an employee took them home. ‘They are quite a find and as minty as can be. I can remember seeing quite a few of them myself during the war,’ said Roy Butler, from auctioneers Wallis & Wallis in Lewes, East Sussex, England.

The A1 and A3- sized posters are expected to fetch up to £160 per lot of four on March 23.
