Rationing Ticket

In communist Poland, during the 80s, a family was entitled to 1 kg of flour per calendar month, based on these rationing tickets. This one actually belongs to a family member, who held on to hers.

 

Bear in mind: there was hardly any bread to be bought anywhere (the shops empty), so the only way to obtain baked goods was to bake them yourself... using no more than the 1 kg of flour alotted to you...
