On the plus side... no president Eisenhower yet and no interstate highway system... (no suburbs!)... i have heard about some truly insane commute times for folks here near big cities.... no wonder people are working from home! Nice period piece, thanks for sharing it!!! Looks like the state there is D.C.-- how bad is that commute today??

DC commute times are about 60 minutes to go anywhere during peak times and longer if there is weather involved.

100 gal of fuel for 15.00 (an amazing price)

officially didn't matter how much money you had during WWII no ration stamp/card - no sale

hence black market profiteering for liquor, meat, sugar, chocolate and gasoline.
