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.
