Coffee at War


WWIICoffee – I saw this advertisement from 1943 sent out on Twitter by @ArchivistWWII today. I thought that it tied in with the post on coffee rationing I made a short time ago. I guess the 20:1 ratio was important during those times of conservation and shortage, but I don’t see anything in that ad that talks about how great the flavor was. I guess that something hot and tasting close to coffee was better than nothing in that time of hardship.

This is only one of the many advertisements that @ArchivistWWII has posted on Twitter from the War years.

If you are a student of the World War II era in history, you may find my pages “World War II Sources” (a collection of museums, websites, Facebook pages, and Twitter feeds with information on the World War II era in history) and “World War II Timeline” of interest.
