Prophylactics, Propaganda, and Posters, Oh My!
Via Morbid Anatomy, the National Museum of Health and Medicine has uploaded a bunch of the historical images they’ve been digitizing to Flickr while they’re working on completing their official online archive.
Many of the currently available photos are related to WWI, field/military medicine, prostheses, etc. The image to the left is by Venereal Disease Control Office, L.J. Stephens, Captain, Medical Corps, Jefferson Barracks, M.O. (used under a Creative Commons license). Apparently our government knew some things during WWII that they’ve forgotten now.
