WWI Coal Miners War Poster
Antique WWI UK War Poster "Abram Collieries A Roll Call Of Honour" Coal Miners Poster.
This is extremely rare WWI poster. I found 2 listing for this poster on Google while researching. One was on ArtFact and the other was The Canadian Museum. Could NOT find this in the Imperial War Museum, so if you buy it you may think about donating it to their collection. Essentially, Abram Collieries are a coal mining area in the UK. They are also the site of one of the worst minig disasters in UK coal minig history in the late 1800's. I can imagine they gave thier share of men to WWI, and this poster was made to honor the deceased. It is more indicative of the work you would expect to see from a French artist than a UK one, but it is what it is. It is a stirring tribute to the UK coal miners that went to War and gave their lives much as they did in the English dank mines. This poster is about 34" x 22". It looks to have ink smeared much as you would coal dust. I do not know if that is how it was made and the 2 mentions I found of the poster do not have a photo. There is a tear at the bottom center and I have shown that. It is backed on linen.
