Two pictures illustrate the outcome of a trip to the grocer with and without rationing. The top picture, captioned "without rationing," shows a woman leaving with a case of canned goods and while an apologetic grocer gestures towards his empty shelves in response to a second woman's request. The lower picture, captioned "with rationing," shows the grocer standing in front of well-stocked shelves and handing each woman a single can. U.S. Government Printing Office : 1943--O-514173
