Isn't vintage festive? See our salute to holiday classics
Christmastime is all about memories.
Like the classic holiday epic
“Miracle on 34th St“.
Originally a 1947 film release, and so many re-makes, yet its holiday message endures time.
But what were those times like.
Dreary post-WW II melancholy…needing infused hope.
Let’s turn back time and explore some vintage recipes from those times then.
…during World War II, meat shortages in that era of food rationing prompted a turn toward seafood alternatives. The Dept of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Dept then, had test kitchens that churned out assorted recipes for items like: smoked salmon rolls, oyster, crab and lobster dishes–in those days then.
Here are some authentic archival press releases, circa 1947.
