Where rubber-sole Kedettes have gone…Barrage Balloons - US Rubber Co., 1943
A stunning WWII poster of unmanned barrage balloons protecting war production factories below. A fantastic design created for US Rubber Company, the producer of Kedettes and Keds sneakers. Barrage balloons were dreaded by dive bomber pilots who could get tangled up in their heavy steel cables and explosives. The balloons forced planes to fly at higer altitudes, where anti-aircraft guns were more effective and bombing accuracy was more problematic. The price of this poster includes linen backing.
