This wonderful brochure for the 1942 Sportsman Show in Boston is a great little time capsule of what it was like to be a “guy” right at the start of WWII. It’s also a reminder of how deeply embedded our minds are regarding comfort food and life in general.
Now this is a REAL breakfast. Bacon and Coffee.
Here is a cover from the 1939 Show. This actually makes more sense. An Indian Scout. During WW1 and WW2 these Native American Scouts made a HUGE contribution to the war effort. And the Navajo Code Talkers story is even cooler. But back to this ad for Sweeco! And Marshmallow Fluff
And then you have this ad. “Hey guys, Great hunting, you really killed that bear. Who wants Cocoa? And some Marshmallow Fluff?”
By the way, this is the type of boat that was being produced in 1942!
Okay, and these were the last of the pre war series from Chris Craft
And of course it all comes back to Bacon! Hey this is my theory.
