‘Why not a canteen job?’ London Transport tea towel

Canteen tea-towel

If you find yourself chained to the kitchen in a bid to feed your hungry family, this London Transport tea towel will certainly give you food for thought. The tea towel shows an advert from 1949 which asks 'Why not a canteen job?'. The design is typically of the period and it lists the benefits on offer to canteen workers. The offer of extra pay for Sundays and relief duties will certainly seem appealing if your culinary efforts go unappreciated! 

The tea towel is on sale from Whitbread Wilkinson for £5 who also reproduce the same design on an apron for £10.
