Description Print. Black and white photographic print of a window display at J.L. Hudson Company Department Store.

A large mural in the background depicts military personnel disembarking a large ship, and walking toward the mannequin. Signage affixed to the left side of the display reads, "Our Boys. They'll be coming back soon - with a pack of souvenirs swung over the shoulder - maybe with a Jap flag tucked under their belt. But - we must do our part - we must buy more war bonds to hasten the day of unconditional surrender. Let's do it now!" Also, affixed to the bottom foreground of the display a sign which reads, "Buy U.S. War Savings Bonds, Immediate Delivery, WAR BONDS, 11th Floor, Woodward, Section D."
