Vogue Cover Part II


From David Hauslaib’s Jossip

Here’s a World War I enlistment poster (via) from 1917, famous from its era, that encouraged men to sign up with the army to fight the German enemy. (Interestingly, the Germans found it so convincing, they Nazis used the same concept for their own World War II poster.)
So...was it an accident, an innocent, artistic, creative photo--or was it more sinister than that? In another world, where things were fair, objective and the playing field level (or at least more level) it’s a question we wouldn’t have to ask is it?

What a wild - and obvious - similarity in images. Shame.

Yep...hard to take this a coincidence isn't it?
