Caption: Cholera prevention methods. 19th-century illustrations of methods to prevent the spread of cholera. This included avoiding materials and animals from areas affected by an outbreak, avoiding contaminated milk, using medicines, and proper sanitation. The last method was particularly effective. Cholera, a bacterial infection of the intestines, was often fatal before modern treatments were developed. It spread in infected water supplies and killed millions in the 19th century. The bacterium causing the disease (Vibrio cholerae) was not identified until 1883. Artwork published in the British weekly illustrated newspaper 'The Graphic' on 1 October 1892.
