Civil Defense All-Purpose Survival Crackers

So they’ve discovered a bunker of sorts inside the Brooklyn Bridge that sat untouched for over 40 years. It was a cache of supplies to feed survivors in NYC in case of a nuclear attack. A major feature of this and other such hoards: Civil Defense All-Purpose Survival Crackers. This site had 352,000 of the “calorie-packed” snacks. I guess I never envisioned myself haunting the ruins of post-apocalyptic New York with survival crackers. Talking apes, maybe, but survival crackers, no. Iron rations for the Cold War generation I suppose. You can find the NY Times article on the hoard here:

It’s an interesting read. I’d like to see more pictures though.
