National Amusement - The 'Bus Kitchen 1918

If the ministry of food carries out its latest scheme, there should be plenty of excitement in getting one's dinner from the travelling food kichens, especially since the ministry naively remarks that there is no reson why gramophones and electric pianos should not be utilised to make the time of waiting for your potatoes less wearisome.

A 'help yourself' grocery - checkout

Photograph taken from a United States supermarket in 1948, 'where Britain's queues and rations are unknown', showing a woman being served at the checkout. The concept of the supermarket where all manner of goods could be bought in one place, without the assistance of a shop keeper, and then paid for at a checkout, was first introduced in America where rationing did not feature following World War II. This picture was one of a series taken in an A&P supermarket; America's largest chain begun in 1937 and with 1670 supermarkets by 1948.
