Making the best of it: a lecture on nutrition ("Flesh Formers") in the church hall of St Augustine of Canterbury, Victoria Park Road, Hackney, in London, during the First World War. The clergyman on the platform appears to be the only man present. German submarine warfare led to food shortages towards the end of the war. A photo from the book reviewed here.
