[A propaganda poster of India during the Second World War]

image of India. show larger image

India. Leeds & London: Alf Cooke Ltd for H.M. Stationery Office, c.1944. Chromolithograph, sheet 750 x 500mm. Minor repairs to original folds.
A map of India marking the products of the various regions, praising the industrial development that was making the country more self-sufficient, thus aiding the war effort. Although the map is not signed the style is similar to that of Frederick Donald Blake (1908-1997), who produced a number of posters, not only propaganda but also adverts for train and shipping services. This poster is apparently from the same series of Commonwealth country maps as the MacDonald Gill maps.
