Description

Ca. 1946 photo of a promotion for "Wear a V.F.W. Buddy Poppy," very likely a fund raising activity for the VFW. Two women hold a poster describing the concept, while a veteran (wearing the cap) either receives or gives a poppy to a lady. The location may be the offices of the VFW at 69 College St., Burlington, Vt. (Howard Plant Post, #782). In the background are an American flag, the VFW post flag, a cross, and some military emblems.

Genre(s): photographs, black-and-white photographs
