I just found this comic strip in the daily mirror from 1946-1948 
some of info is outdated, may use  illegal techniques and
may suggest the use of banned chemicals. this is being posted
for entertainment and historical purposes only. 
PS: the strips may not have uploaded in chronological order.

  • i am not obsessed with the post war period in Britain.
    as for aspect history  i research , I  deal with food and
    gardening only.  if you you want I will post some pre
    or post ww1 gardening,  ww2 and great depression
     era gardening info from uk, au and USA.

    pansy face i ignore the parts the era you refer to
    because this is garden message board not a social 
    or political one.  though garden and food are affected 
    by the things you mention above they also can be seen
    independently  of it. gardening info has aspects that have
    not changed for a hundred years, culture, social and
    political thingpart change constantly.

    Nice idea ,I actually don’t think there are many on the site that share your interest ,that’s a shame for you .I did look at your comic cuts and found it interesting from the view of history ,but I would advise not to really persevere with your current line of posting .

    I agree @bcpathome. You're a trier @war garden 572, all credit to you. I've found some of your articles interesting from the history point of view but mainly not practical these days. However, if you feel you want to share your interest then I'm sure some members would like to read them.
