Above and below - these photos show a 'utility wardrobe' still in use in 2004! It was made to use very few materials, and to have no fancy decorations. Many items made during the war had to comply with government guidelines which determined how much material could be used (just the bare minimum really).

It can be seen that this utility wardrobe has no ornamentation, no frills and is really quite small.

During the Second World War, rationing was introduced. Everyone had a ration book and you would need tokens to buy things like food and clothes. Rationing carried on after the war because lots of things were in short supply. People had to carry an identity card to say who they were.

Here are some memories of rationing in and after World War 2 (WW2 or WWII):

"In 1952 meat rationing was still on. Some people had to change their eating habits because of rationing.  Most people had dried eggs and only occasionally were there fresh eggs. Hens had to be registered before you could buy corn for them. There were no bananas or citrus fruit until 1945. Not everything was rationed, just the essentials like meat, milk, eggs, bread, clothes. Everything was in short supply. People queued for lots of things, and anything that was not rationed, you queued for. They queued for horse flesh for their dogs. Petrol was rationed. Clothing coupons were issued. Blankets and furniture was a utility brand, which meant it was all plain and simple and standard measurements.   Everyone had ration books. Shops had to get permits to get supplies.  The Women's' Institute (WI)  had a food preservation scheme using jars and cans."

What was food like before the war?

"Pre-war food was stodgy."

It is said by many that people had a healthier diet than they do in 2004. What do you think? Why would this be so?
