Four Freedoms

Taken in 1943 by an unidentified photographer, the caption accompanying this photo reads:

"In enemy-occupied countries where matches are scarce, five tons of them have been circulated by methods which must remain military secrets for the present. They carry this message to every match lighter: "The Four Freedoms--Freedom to speak, Freedom to worship, Freedom to think, Freedom from want."
