|Save the Nations Bread, vintage poster image courtesy of UK Imperial War Museum|
A couple of weeks ago, I posted an image of a vintage poster that reference 4 lbs of bread per week. I found another poster image online that referenced the same thing, from WWI.
Once again, they urged everyone to "Waste Not Want Not" and to "Save the Nation's Bread" (this is from the UK). The national ration was 4 pounds each per week. We're still amazed at the amount...we're not even sure we eat that much in a month, much less a week. Of course, as many of you pointed out, people worked much harder then, physical, sun-up to sun-down type of work. They also walked more places and of course starchy foods helped keep them warmer in Winter.
Hope you are having a good weekend. I guess for some of you on the other side of the world you are in Winter, but for us here, there is no doubt it is the middle of Summer.
Staying in today, just too dang hot. Ugh.
