WWI print blocks

Recently we were given three original WWI print blocks. One is a WWI-era British tank. The second is of a Sammie, the term for a WWI American soldier. The third, and my favorite, depicts a WWI camp scene with canvas camp tents, a cannon, 48 star flag (you can tell that the flag is 48 star because of the symmetry of the stars) and, flying overhead, a biplane. Last Saturday, we printed the camp scene block, maybe for the first time 100 years. This is why we do what we do - to preserve bits of history like this.
