This chart features a cover for sheet music from 1918.

The song is praise for the American Red Cross nurses. When the United States declared war on Germany, the American Red Cross was tasked with aiding American servicemen in Europe. In addition to mobilizing more than 20,000 nurses and building 54 hospitals overseas, the Red Cross provided a way for patriotic men, women and children back home to contribute to war relief. By the end of the war, nearly one-third of all Americans had donated in support of the Red Cross effort or were serving as volunteers. The Red Cross continues their work today. Their motto? Sleeves Up. Hearts Open. All In.

This chart is available in three styles
1. As in photo 1 with words and border
2. As is photo 2 with plain red cross and border
3. With plain red cross only - no words or border.
Please leave a note at checkout if you would like version 2 or 3, otherwise you will receive version 1.

This image is printed onto 100% cotton canvas fabric. The print is displayed in a reusable poster hanger that is made of oak wood rails that are compressed together by antiqued brass thumb screws and attached to the top and bottom of the print. The hanger can then be hung on a hook or nail by the brass ring and organic hemp twine or bakers twine.

The wood is finished in your choice of 100% non-toxic and environmentally friendly finishes. You can feel good about hanging this in a nursery or child's room. I use milk paint followed by my own polish made of beeswax and organic hemp oil for the Old Oak and Black Oak finishes. Raw Oak has no finish for a Scandinavian look or you can paint or stain the wood however you please!

============================================================

+ Oak wood is sourced from sustainably managed forests. Oak as an ethical construction material really is quite hard to beat. Having absorbed carbon dioxide throughout its life, an oak tree has already repaid its debt to the environment before it is felled. In addition to this, oak has a longevity and beauty many other materials cannot match.

+ Wood hangers are 1" tall x 1" deep (including thumb screws) x width chosen above + approx. 1".

+ Canvas and assembled poster hanger are shipped together but the print is not installed to avoid damage to the print. Installing the canvas is easy and no tools are required. Simply unscrew the thumb screws from the posts and insert the canvas edge in between the wood rails at top and bottom. Tighten the screws and your canvas is ready to hang.

+ Printed on heavy-weight cotton canvas fabric. Most canvas prints on the market have an acrylic coating which is a type of plastic. The canvas I print on looks and feels like cotton canvas fiber as it has no coating. I print in-house on a commercial printer using archival quality pigment inks.

+ Hand finished with 100% non-toxic and organic milk paint and wax. You can choose either Raw Oak, Old Oak or Black Oak. Raw Oak has no finish. See picture seven for choices.

+ If you intend to stain or paint Raw Oak yourself please include a note at checkout so I can ship with the twine separate. Instructions will be included to thread the twine once your finish is complete.

+ Includes your choice of hemp, black or bakers twine with brass ring for hanging. See picture eight for choices.

+ 17" x 17" size with Old Oak Hangers and Orange & White Twine is pictured.
