World War II Ration Cards



During World War II to support the war effort, Americans had to ration at home. The San Francisco Main Library had a little display of original ration cards and items related to it:

Ration Stamps

And the books:

It was so very interesting to see these. 

It is Memorial Day weekend and please say a prayer for all those who have given their life in defense and serving this country.


  1. Very interesting indeed. And I think we're heading for these "rationing days" again.

  2. A fitting history for this weekend.

  3. I've never seen one but I'm sure my grandparents would've.


Love hearing comments on stuff. Please tell me what you think of the places I have been to. If you like them or not. I love comments.
