Anti-confederate Campaign, 1948.
Anti-confederate posters were often patriotically displayed in the windows of many
Newfoundland homes and businesses. Although split between two separate camps, there was
considerable support for responsible government prior to the first 1948 referendum. The posters
in the window of this home supported the Economic Union Party (EUP) argument which
advocated a special economic partnership with the United States. Chesley Crosbie, leader of the
EUP, is depicted on two of these posters.
