Exchange rate for goods in the year 1915

Description

This postcard shows staple goods – beans, petrol, rice and oil – being pulled through a crowd on a wagon. The prices marked on the containers are very high and this is presumably a comment on inflation during the war.

There is often a fine line between information and propaganda. This especially applies to war postcards such as this one.
