This is an original 1943 halftone print of pigs being grown in a bomb-gutted structure in London, England on Savile Row. During wartime, few families were without animals-- geese, chickens, and rabbits were found in the city to help fatten bellies with the meager food rations. In the beginning of the war, targets were set based on military function, but between 1939 and 1942, the policy was slowly abandoned, and bombs were sent down on civilians and city infrastructure.
