Ministry of Food Posters

A new exhibition at London's Imperial War Museum (Feb 12 to Jan 3 2011)
pays tribute to a nation's creativity and resourcefulness
in the face of wartime and peacetime food rationing.
Here is some of the eye-catching British Government propaganda
used on the 'Kitchen Front' during that time.

The following posters were all used during the Second World War
to encourage austerity and stoicism on Britain's home front.
They form part of an exhibition at the Museum of Brands in London
entitled Make Do and Mend
(www.museumofbrands.com ;
020 79080880; 2 Colville Mews, Lonsdale Road, Notting Hill, London W11 2AR).
