|Eat More...Save the Wheat, image courtesy of US National Archive|
We realized recently we haven't posted any images of vintage posters in awhile because of the crazy weekend weather of the last couple of months, so I scoured the Internet the other night to find some more. For those new to the blog in the last few months, every Sunday we would usually post images of food/gardening/conservations related vintage posters. Click the HISTORY label at the bottom of this post (or over to the right in the sidebar) and you can see others that we have posted in previous weeks.
This one comes from WWI, about 1917 or so, from the US Food Administration. It urged people to "Eat More Cornmeal, Rye flour, Oatmeal and Barley" so as to "Save the Wheat for the Fighters". We love the canisters they use in the image. Nice graphics on this one.
While this posts, we are at the farm enjoying the clear weekend weather. It's HOT though, but still, I won't start complaining about that for a while...at least a couple of weeks, LOL.
Update tonight and will catch up on comments!!
