Portland Gas & Coke Co. employees posing with defense bonds and poster

Photograph showing unidentified employees of the Portland Gas & Coke Company posing in two groups on either side of a poster. Each person is looking toward the camera and is holding up a United States defense bond. The poster depicts a handshake superimposed over a factory. Just below the handshake is the word “BUY,” which has been crossed out. Below that is the text “We’re buying a share in America / United States defense bonds.” Below that is a sentence that originally read “Ask about our pay roll savings purchase plan.” The first two words have been crossed out and new words written above them, so the sentence reads: “It’s easy with our pay roll savings purchase plan.” A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 2, Section 2, of the Oregon Journal on March 2, 1942. The photograph had the following caption: “FIRST MEMBERS of the Portland Gas & Coke Co. organization to receive defense bonds under a payroll deduction plan change ‘buy’ on the bond poster to ‘we’re buying a share in America,’ after bonds were delivered to them by Lynn P. Sabin of the bond staff here.” Image note: The number 2116 is written on the negative. See related image Nos. 375A0808, 375A0809, and 375A0810.
