Coffee Shortage

Top: No more coffee in Sunfax Market, Hollywood, so sign begs customers not to blame grocer. The real blame is on U-boats' attacks on the coffee freighters up from Brazil.

Bottom: To prevent hoarding, grocer shows customer how he punctures or unseals cans of vacuum-packed coffee. Coffee in cans thus punctured must be used within a short time.

Life November 30, 1942


How do you think Hollywood would fare today?
