Replica Ration Book

Every person in Britain was given a Ration book.

They had to register and buy their food from chosen shops. There were no supermarkets, so people had to visit several different shops in order to buy meant, vegetables, bread and other goods. 

When people wanted to buy food, the items they wanted to buy would be marked off in their ration book by the shopkeeper. 

Rationing made sure that everyone received an equal amount of food every week.
