Most every Sunday, we try to post an image of old posters that we find during online surfing. We enjoy the ones that reflect farming, gardening and/or food preservation and rationing. We enjoy them because we often wonder if anyone today would heed the kind of advice they gave back then...enjoy!
Here is an interesting twist. It's for the WWII Victory Garden campaign and in this ad (not sure if it was a poster or just an advertisement) Coca Cola got in on the action by reminding folks that hospitality in a Victory Garden might include offering a Coca Cola as refreshment.
Since I can't get this image any larger, I will post what it says:
"There is a victory Garden in almost every backyard this Summer, growing food and vitamins for the family. The owners are as proud of their vegetables as they are of specimen roses or dahlias. Friends in work clothes come over to admire and compare crops. They eat tomatoes right off the vine and munch carrots straight from the earth. Then, when a few minutes of relaxation are in order, they drink ice-cold Coca Cola and enjoy perfect refreshment while contemplating the results of their work..."
I think that could be as true today. Perhaps our friends might not come over in their work clothes, but I bet we all have some friends who've admired our gardens, or at the very least, that we are proud to show them too.
Hmm, now that I think about it, in a way, isn't blogging just that?
Care to join me in a virtual Coca-Cola?
