World War II

Description

During World War II, there was a great demand for various materials, such as rubber, iron, and steel. Junk drives, scrap drives, and other types of collection initiatives were made in an attempt to get the public involved and to donate old, unused items. This 1942 advertisement in the Central Virginian describes what materials were needed, as well as what could be made from particular donations. For example: One old shovel will help make 4 hand grenades.
