They Think It's All Over...

As these lads attest: if it ain't Gingham, why even bother?
8th July, 2011 (Montreal)--Around the world we pause this Friday in Remembrance for those who suffered during the 1930's. Prohibition? No Jobs? No Wine? None of this was the main problem. As you can see from these cooks in Melbourne, the Great Gingham Drought of 1935 spelled the end of the roaring 20's. It took five years for all the world's Gingham to be used up and like many other industries, it was the next World War that kick-started the Seventh Wave of Gingham Tradition. As you can see, life can still be lived without certain essentials, so let this picture allow us to appreciate what we do have. And for all of us, no matter how hard it was to get to Friday this week, at least we Got Gingham!

May this be a lesson to us all. Don't worry, we've got lots more Gingham tomorrow. Luckily for us, there's Gingham all over.
