Guiness Original Advertising WW2 vintage Poster

Dig For Plenty1945. DIG FOR PLENTY GUINNESS FOR STRENGTH . Original Advertising poster for the famous Irish Ale Guiness. This rare poster designed by John Gilray depicts a farmer carrying a wheelbarrow impossibly loaded down with his bountiful crop. Like so many Guiness posters this humorous design plays on the strength derived from drinking Guiness with a bottle perhed on the basket on his head. This popular  WW2 slogan was often seen during the war years as a Victory rally  encouraging farmers and general public to grow more food for the war effort.
