Shoe Shopping

August 31, 2013


What is on your shopping plans this weekend? For this WAVE, new shoes were a must. Note the instruction sign in the upper left explaining what enlisted personnel must do in order to get “shoe certificates.” During World War II, many materials were rationed for the war effort, and so things like leather shoes were limited.

The 1943 photograph comes from the National Archives.
