"My Machine." Poster by General Cable Corporation, September 1944.

In a series of wartime posters for their workers. Transposes the US Marines' encomium to "My Rifle"—The Rifleman's Creed[1]—to "My Machine," asserting the worker's oneness with the machine and gratitude toward it. (Caution: This encomium should not be confused with the mnemonic for differentiating between "rifle" and "gun.")
