In the 1940s, people worked in a variety of sectors including manufacturing, agriculture, and services. Many individuals were involved in manufacturing goods for the war effort, such as airplanes, weaponry, and munitions. Others were employed in farming and agriculture to support food production and meet the increased demand during the war. Additionally, services like healthcare, education, retail, and transportation continued to provide employment opportunities.
Unfortunately, I do not have any contact information for Livia Bitton-Jackson. You may try searching online for her official website or social media accounts, or reach out to her publisher or literary agent for contact information.
There are several ways to find old photos of the Watertown SD Airbase from the 1940s through 1950s.
Start by checking local historical societies or archives in Watertown, SD. They may have a collection of photographs, newspapers, or documents related to the airbase during that period.
Visit online platforms and websites that specialize in historical photographs, such as historical photo archives, military history websites, or local history forums where people might have shared old photos of the base.
Reach out to former military personnel who served at the airbase during that time or their families. They may have personal photo collections or know someone who does. Social media groups or online communities dedicated to veterans may be a good place to start.

A traditional picnic can include sandwiches, fresh fruit, fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, crackers & peanut butter. pretty much anything you want to eat cold.
The beginnings of sausage making goes back to ancient Greek and Roman times.
They used to use all of the animal...the bits and pieces at the end of butchering were minced, spices added and stuffed into the intestines of the animal. Then, the sausages were smoked. This helped preserve the meat for eating later.
Americans were still coming out of the Great Depression, and during the first half of the 1940's, food was rationed. Canned goods such as Campbell's soup products were very popular and affordable, as were hotdogs and beans. Hearty homemade foods that could be made from canned and dry goods like chicken pot pie, as well as chili, stews, and soups that would last for several days and made to serve a large quantity of people. Also, many Americans had parents of European heritage, and were still making traditional recipes from their ancestry. Victory Gardens were popular during the war, because produce was so scarce, and so homegrown salads were a common, seasonal luxury. There were popular candy bars for that time, cigarette's, and Coca Cola products that were often shipped overseas to US soldiers. Also, some American soldiers started to like some of the British dishes they experienced when over in England.
I was a young girl then and I know the answer to this one!! It was called BONUS SOAP - this was a powdered laundry detergent. Each box contained a piece of china and there was no way of knowing what was in your box until you got it home and opened it up. I have over 90 pieces of this set and just added to it today!
During the 1940's food was being rationed and people were only allowed a certain amount of food, due to the war. Many people planted 'victory gardens', as they were called, and ate fruits and vegetables they grew. More people were eating beef instead of chicken because it was cheaper at the time. There was not many sugary foods being eaten due to sugar being one of the main food items that was rationed.
I ranges from 1000-6000 dollars depending on it's quality and abilty to store milk.
well food was rationed from 1942 -1947 so people were encouraged to plant their own gardens. Foods like meat, coffee, sugar were all rationed so you had to make due with alternative recipes and be a bit creative. People ate things like cabbage or radish sandwiches.
The prices for food were much, much different than they are today. Here are two websites for you to see a lot of prices including food, clothing, and cars. http://www.thepeoplehistory.com/50sfood.html http://www.thepeoplehistory.com/1950s.html Hope that helps!
In 1943 a pint of beer was 5p (or 1 shilling)
25 cents you could only pay in nickels, dimes, and a quarter nothing else
Assuming you're referring to a British shilling, it has no current value in commerce.
The coin's face value is equivalent to 5p; shillings and old-style 5p coins co-circulated up till the early 1990s when new and much smaller 5p coins were introduced. All older 5p and 1s coins were then withdrawn from circulation.
However, many older shillings can be worth a premium to collectors - please post a new question with the coin's exact date.
they played with dolls and cars and that is it
In 1923, with a down payment of $4 down ($48.49 in today's money), one could buy a Damascus Vibrating Shuttle sewing machine on a $4 monthly installment plan until it is paid off at a price of $29.95 (that's $363.08 in today's money). If you were able to pay in cash, the price would be only $27.95 ($338.83 in today's money). The machine was manually powered by the large pedal at the bottom.
== == Each of the 120 signatures would have to be valued on it's own merit. Each signature will be valued as a "cut signature". Cut Signatures are often cut from an item that has been ruined to save its value from such items as a cover of a publication, photograph, letter or notebook on which it was originally signed. Cuts are commonly used by collectors to display with a framed photo, or for inserts by baseball card companies.
If you sell the autograph book as a whole you would get less money, but more information would be needed to give a more accurate value.
No. Videogames came after the computer, which was invented in... Don't quote me on this but call it 1985. So no, with no computers videogames didn't exist, let alone the hardware required to run them.
If I asked this question, sorry, mam or sir. I was referring to more of a computer game which I found on-line; it might have used lightbulbs. Thank you.
The price of a pair of jeans from the retail store the GAP can range in price. There are sale and clearance prices as well as a full price of 49.99 and above.
Someone was probably working on it somewhere and it became available in the either the very late 1940's or early fifties. It was incredibally expensive and color qulity was poor. People had a greenish tint or a reddish tint but you could never get it just right. Keep in mind that in the 1950's a lot of US households didn't even have a black and white TV. I bought my first color set in 1967. It was a Bradford 13" portable that weighed about 200 pounds. The color quality was still poor and faded in and out all the time. The Bradford was the cheapest set I could find and it cost me $252.00. Today you can buy a much better 13" color portable for about $65.00.
