Don’t Waste Bread ~1916

Le Pain.

Translation: Our duty is not to waste bread.

From a group of posters designed by school children and others, some marked “Affiche composée par les enfants de France pour la prévoyance et les économies.”

Celebrating the 100th anniversary to the end of WWI. To honor the event, I am sharing several posters under the category: ‘Economic and Industrial Aspects’.

  1. Your poster reminds me of reading a French inspired book in which when French children are done with their schooling for the day, eagerly run home for their *chocolate bread* in which they toasted the bread and melted part of a chocolate bar as a *spread* as jam, to place on this treat they had only after school. Other children ran to the bakery with money to purchase other sweet breads to hold them over until dinner.

    I thought it completely charming!
