Home Front

Post by Doughboy353 » Thu Feb 21, 2013 8:40 am

Steve, I have several home front items in my collection. I think it would be nice for "G" members to share photos and info about this subject. I think this area is overlooked by most collectors. A good book on the subject is "AMERICA'S WARTIME SCRAPBOOK" (From Pearl Harbor to V-J Day) I purchased my copy from the Military Book Club. The book contains photos of all kinds of home front/sweetheart items. It is mostly a picture book .

Thanks, Luke. It's kind of been a lifelong thing. Some of the things I've had for 30-40 years. There's lots more. Getting it displayed seems to be the key. I'm working on it......

Kinda expected the 30-40 years thing. I bet this stuff was easier to find then. Is the table period, or did you make that? One of my favorite things you posted is the sign about the tin cans!

We made the table from the back half of a practice bomb and my friend made the table top. It seems to work well with the stuff in my shop.
