Sam Says Save Sheds
Here we see, Greenock's very own Uncle Sam getting behind the campaign. See him wear his Sugar Sheds Campaign teeshirt with pride. This poster can be downloaded here if you fancy putting it up in yer house / shop / workplace to encourage family and colleagues to show their support for the campaign by signing the petition. Paper copies are also available from Volunteer Centre Greenock (in Westburn Centre, Dalrymple Street, across from Tescos Car Park) or at 7 1/2 John Wood Street in Port Glasgow. Paper copies of the petition can also be picked up / returned at these venues, or just signed online here.
If you're interested in the history of one of the most famous recruitment posters in history, and its journey from Kitchener to Uncle Sam to more current uses in anti-war / peace movements, have a wee look here on "yesterday" or even at the sheer range of variations here.
