Object description

A view of empty bottle holders behind the bar at the Wynnstay Arms, Ruabon. This lack of spirits, such as whisky and gin was a common sight in wartime. Also visible is a price list for beers. The original caption states that the "scrawled out, altered price list shows budget increases in drink prices". A poster invites locals to donate their 'rural pennies' to the Red Cross Agriculture Fund.
