Description

1945 photo of a store window display with portraits of war leaders, some of whom had appeared on the cover of Time magazine. Most prominent is a photo of FDR, whose portrait is placed between 2 war bonds. Below is a poster showing a battle-hardened GI saying "Next!" with an image of Japan and the Japanese flag at the bottom of the poster. Display was probably made after Victory in Europe Day (8 May 1945), thereby suggesting that Japan will be the site of the next American victory. The usual exhortation to "buy more bonds" is at the very bottom.
