A black and white photograph of an 'anti-inflation' window display with a figure of Uncle Sam
Howard Liberman, photographer. Price control. Anti-inflation window display. The joint effort of the government and merchant to prevent inflation is the big selling point of this display. Most important is the "shy-ceiling-prices" scroll held by the figure of Uncle Sam which answers the consumers' questions on price control. Sept. 1942.
