I think this is a pretty fun poster. It's from WWI, and, well, it's all about beans!
You know, beans beans the magical fruit, the more....oh yeah, you know!
Anyway, they urged people to grow beans because, as the poster says, they were more important than bullets! In a time when food was in short supply and what we had was needed for the troops overseas, beans provided nutrition to those at home and so the "Michigan Food Preparedness Committee"
(I love that name!) came up with this poster and made the push to get people growing more beans.
Fascinating glimpse into our past!
Hope you are having a great weekend!
