CRW Nevinson’s star continues to rise, and rightly so. Here is The Statue of Liberty from the Railroad Club, painted in 1919 and up for auction next week.

Hey kids, now you know what to do with your vinyl when you get fed up with it:  Send it off to the front! Slacker Record Week (I kid you not) took place from October 28 to November 2nd 1918 in the US. Citizens collected unwanted discs and sent them to the forces. This poster was designed by Charles Buckles Falls, who was on the job for book donations too.
