Can anyone provide a better image for this Fortress?

This was the first bomber to be funded by the sale of War Bonds and Stamps by pupils and staff at A.B.Davis High School, Mount Vernon, New York. In all, at least four bombers or different types were purchased by war's end. The first was this B17 Flying Fortress, another was US Navy bomber (possibly a Helldiver or Corsair assigned to VB-83 or VBF-83 on the USS Essex), another was a silver B24J and the last was B29 Superfort.
