History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Oh, I loved watching Supersizers Go (or was it Eat?) Fifties - a lot of these posters remind me of that episode: grow your own, watch your rations, eat veggies...

Brilliant. Just saw a few of these at London's Imperial War Museum over the weekend. The last one with the shovel/ship is a genius piece of graphic design.

I think some of these posters are ever so relevant today. Maybe we should bring them back, especially the one that says "Use spades, not ships." Maybe it would help promote the local food movement more and remind people that it takes a lot of fuel, etc. to ship food around the world.

I think they are both funny and have a good message (even though some do not apply anymore). I never make more than i can eat and if i'm still hungry after i finish i just have a snack.
