Good Housekeeping: Wartime Scrapbook: A Nostalgic Portrait of Everyday Life During the Second World War (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Good Housekeeping was one of very few publications that was printed throughout the war, despite paper shortages and rations. The government supported the magazine - one of its most important elements was the recipes that were endorsed by the Ministry of Food, designed to encourage readers to use every resource available to them to keep their families as healthy as possible. Other vitally important messages reiterated by 'Good Housekeeping' during the war years were to recycle and save paper and to grow your own food wherever possible. This often amusing and nostalgic collection takes a look at contemporary fashion, beauty and household tips, cartoons, recipes and much more, all reflecting the changing role of women in society at that time and providing a fascinating insight into the wartime habits of the magazine's readers.

The scrapbook is divided into chapters, focusing on the key issues for women during this important time in history, including the home and running the household; money matters and budgeting; women's rights in the workplace and their position in society; health, beauty, advice on hair and make-up; wartime fashions; rationing, food and recipe ideas. Vintage competitions and advertisements are included throughout, adding a unique insight into how life really was during wartime.
