Description
Not only in wartime, but through much of Britain's 20th century, credit has been crunched, the economy battered, prices have gone up, and hopes down. Belt-tightening was the order of the day as all classes were urged to economize, make do and mend, spin things out, and avoid waste. In this waggish look back at lean times—delightfully illustrated with period magazine clippings, posters, and recipe guides—Hunter Davies recounts handy, often hilarious exhortations as they were applied to food, children, health, clothing, the home, money, and savings. Some of the hints and advice are mystifying to us now, but some could still prove useful in today's economic climate.
