World War II poster by J. Howard Miller, for the Westinghouse War Production Co-Ordinating Committee, probably 1942. Like many Pittsburgh companies, Westinghouse encouraged their workers to participate in the Victory Garden campaign. This poster, made to be displayed in Westinghouse factories, was designed by the same artist who created the famous “We Can Do It!” poster. His signature, “J. Howard Miller,” is visible to the right underneath the wheelbarrow.
