The Home Front in Britain during World War I saw many changes -- changes in the role of women, the rationing of goods, food shortages, etc., but everyone "did their bit" to help the war effort. This fascinating collection of advertising from 1915-1918 gives us an historical snapshot of what life was like for the British people during the First World War.
