War-Era Food Poster

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen “new” old posters. Thanks to Teresa O’Conner (@SeasonalWisdom) for this link

I do wonder what the heck a “gasifier” is, though.


  1. I remember many, many posters during WWII, but not this one. I, too, wonder what a duplex gasifier might be. It does not say, however, that it turns kerosene into gasoline, just gas, and, since the poster makes the tractor look like a steam-powered machine, maybe the kerosene turns into a gaseous state so that it burns better. Donno. Interesting old poster, though.
