History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

The Enemy is Syphilis

A major theme of WPA posters was public awareness-- this may be a reminder to eat fruit or unplug the iron; a reminder to keep mum; or, maybe, a warning about sexually transmitted disease. I love the contrast between the striking graphic design of these posters and the serious subject matter... perfectly WPA.
