WW2 and early 50's " Rationing " ... Food / Sweets .


Gallery Guru
As a boy I grew up with " Rationing " and came across this today which may evoke memories to the O&B ... linky ... BBC News - The time when sweets were strictly rationed ... includes references to Spangles , Fruit Gums and Mars Bars that look as big as a loaf of bread etc .
The basic weekly ration of food seems miniscule compared to what we now consume .... little obesity in those days .
