VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY, EAT MORE FRUIT

Vintage Eat More Fruit poster, image courtesy of UK Archives
This poster comes from Australia.  It's from Victorian Railways and asked people to eat more fruit because it would, as the poster says, put more pep in your step.  I think that's appropriate today as well.

Wouldn't it be neat to see posters around like this, maybe on the sides of buses, instead of the latest movie/TV show or some medication from a big pharmaceutical company?

Speaking of, I think I'll go have an apple and an orange!

Hope you are having a good weekend.  I mowed yesterday, and now today it's pouring rain, so that's a good thing.

More later!

Yes I would like to see more ads like that than medications. Enjoy the rain, cuts down on watering the yard. Total rainfall in my area of CA for the YEAR was 6 inches, there are states getting more than that in a few hours. Send some to CA please.

Yes! I think this would go a long way in helping folks connect to healthy food. I would much rather see this type of poster than some of the ones that I do-

True then and true now huh? Sending good energy to the universe for rain your direction.

Yep, more rain more mowing, which for me, I don't really mind (remind me of that in August, ha). SIX inches for the year? Wow. Yes, got an inch in just a few hours this morning. Hope you get rain too!

I know, some of the ones out there are so depressing. Just the latest processed junk or like I said, drug companies pushing whatever new medicine they have, etc.

Isn't it pretty? I love it. I'd love to see one in person sometime. I might have to see if any Houston libraries have any in their archives.
