Hi Boys and Girls....G-Man goes Wayyy Retro this Wednesday!
(Say that fast and you'll sound just like Elmer Fudd)
During WWII, all sorts of items needed to be rationed.
While some food items were scarce, others did not need rationing.
Americans adjusted accordingly...Red Stamp food items included all meats, butter, fats and oils. Cheese was an exception! Blue Stamp food items included all canned, bottled, and frozen fruits and vegetables. Some juices and dry beans, along with processed baby foods and soups. They became almost as valuable as real currency!
Anyway...This book was owned by Harmon E. Haynes, My Granpa. The picture quality is poor but these are 'Blue Stamps'!
I also have my Granny's as well.
And yes I do indeed own a rotary phone...But I Can't Find It Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
I hope you enjoyed this little History Lesson...Carry On!
