Title

Invest in Liberty Bonds, Barber-Colman.

Description

This sign on the grounds of the Barber-Colman Company in Rockford IL during World War I reads, "Invest Your Savings in Liberty Bonds. Every dollar you subscribe here means two for Uncle Sam. Watch the hand go-round. The eyes of Germany are upon us. Do your share." In an attempt to raise $200,000, the hand on the sign's clock thus far points to almost $15,000. The sign explains, "This clock represents the total amount subscribed by the employees and Barber-Colman Company." This photograph appeared in the Barber-Colman Association (BCA) News, Vol. 2, No. 11, page 12.
