Fourth Air Force Aviation Engineers Camouflage Bond Show  -- Northern California 1944

Rare promotional pamphlet and map, supporting the sale of bonds to support the war effort.

Issued in the winter of 1944, the map illustrates the different places where the War Bond Show had toured and the amounts raised at each of the stops.

As noted, in the map explanation, the show was Fourth Air Force's fourth war bond drive, following a the creation of a similar show on the third bond drive, which covered some 2,500 miles through nine Northern California communities and was credited with raising nearly $3 Million.

The fourth drive covered 12 communities and seems to have raised an even greater sum.
