The Future of the Family - 1946

The hopeful idealism of of post-World War II America can be seen in this 1946 U.S. Treasury poster promoting U.S. Saving Bonds. The parents and children depicted are together a perfect example of the family archetype that would come to symbolize post-war society and the beginnings of the Baby Boom. A classic image from a classic time.
