From the Archives: 75 Years Ago; September, 1943

Last week's blog post featured a snapshot look at 1918 and the news of WWI was very much on the mind of Romeo. This week we will look at September, 1943, where once again war is on the mind of Romeoites. 

National news encouraged the buying of bonds to support the war effort for WWII, and Romeo locals took up the task to raise money as well.

Using the telephone was discouraged--don't you know there's a war going on?





But, pen-pals for the soldiers were encouraged--just make sure to address the envelopes correctly, and don't write about your troubles!
