Historical Photo – Rationing in the Richmond

Rationing in the Richmond RR 8-20

As rationing began during World War II in 1943, the line for Denhard’s Market at 701 10th Ave. near Cabrillo stretched down the block. This photo shows the first day Ration Book Two went into use on March 1, restricting the number of items each household could purchase to a set of limited ration stamps.
