This is a political poster from Hamilton County/Chattanooga Tennessee. It is 12 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches with very light, general wear. About near fine. It was printed by the Allied Printing Trades Council, probably for the Democratic Party. It is dated 2 November [probably 1954]. This political poster asks voters to "Remember the Republicans in 1932." Their choices are symbolized by an African-American family in a brand-new convertible, and an old man in rags hauling a cart. Election Day fell on 2 November in 1948, 1954, 1965, 1971, and 1976. The slogan "For Continued Prosperity, Vote Democratic" was apparently rolled out nationally in 1952, and the car in the photograph appears to be a 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air, so we would guess this was targeted at African-American voters in the 1954 Tennessee state elections. Unusual. ; B&W Photographs; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 1 pages
