Attached is an image of one of the damaged posters that was designed and printed by Red Lahore. The image shows a passenger pigeon perched on a branch in front of a red and black background with the word "Genocide" across the top. I am still working to restore the bottom portion of the image, but you can get a sense of how strongly Lahore felt about the way passenger pigeons were hunted to extinction and try to manipulate the viewer with a highly emotive word.
