How We Used to Give Thanks in Wartime

This lithograph was created by artist A. Hendee and distributed by the U.S. Food Administration in 1918. The idea was to conserve food and supplies to send to the Allies in Europe who were undergoing serious privations during the Great War. My, how things have changed since then!
