Caption

Sugar rationing advert. US advert with information on sugar rationing during World War I. The sacks compare the compulsory monthly sugar ration in England (left), France (centre), and Italy (right). The voluntary ration suggested in the USA is 2lbs (just under a kilogram), the same as the compulsory UK ration. One of the key battles fought in this war was to ensure adequate supplies of food to the combatant nations. These sugar regulations were issues by the US Food Administration. This lithograph was published in New York in 1917.
