I kind of stumbled across this one... WW2 Victory Garden... A 1943 book in darn good condition with some Nostalgia from a By-gone era.. I remember my parents talking about these.. At 72 I'm not quite old enough to remember them but according to them everybody that had room had one..

Alas, a little before my time as well. From what I recall of discussions about Victory Gardens, the intent had both practical and symbolic aspects. On the practical side, the more commodities folks could produce at home the less strain it placed on the farming industry which was had to supply ample nutrition for both our military abroad and folks back home.

Victory Gardens also provided a supplement to rationing. Rationing goods is something folks adjusted to in WWII, but less remembered today. Just about everything was rationed. Tires, vegetables and dairy products, paper, staples, clothing materials, you name it. Ration books were used to keep track of purchases at point of sale and there were serious penalties for those who violated the ration guidelines.

Symbolically, Victory Gardens demonstrated home front support and involvement in the war effort as it encouraged personal sacrifice of time and labor to maintain a garden of consumables. Of course the ultimate goal of the Victory Garden was planting Mussolini and Hitler at the earliest opportunity to fertilize the growth of liberty.

Looks like I need to ration the caffeine a bit more.

Yep. I told my grandkids about this and they sat there in wonderment. Kind of cute.
Somewhere in a bin in a closet I have a WW2 ration book if memory serves me it has “A” stamps that I think were used for gasoline.

Damn now that I started this I also have a San Francisco newspaper With Wyatt Earp refereeing it. Big controversy in the Sharkey vs Fitzsimons fight. I also have some Babe Ruth newspapers with pictures, their all archived in museum acid free paper and in a acid free box. Buried in my closet that’s air conditioned. I live in Florida and all my closets are air conditioned saves on musty clothes.

Random pickup. That Ton of Evil line grabbed me. Looked nicer in the single ebay photo - back is tanned like George Hamilton. Ah well I guess I'll be reading this one. Winner either way.

Cat is really knockin' em out with those Timelys. Ace was whoopin' some too back then.

and they left the cover artists name off the label - Lou Ferstadt. He even signed it on the block holding Davey.
