Caption: Tuberculosis and childhood poster, 1920s. The respiratory bacterial disease tuberculosis (TB) was a widespread cause of death before the use of a vaccine (from 1921) and antibiotics (from 1944). This poster was distributed in the USA by the National Child Welfare Association (NCWA) and the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis. The illustration shows a symbolic Columbia figure with children. Columbia is a quasi-mythological figure representing the spirit of the USA. This poster, advocating fresh air, sunshine, good food and rest, was part of a set produced for a 'Modern Health Crusade' exhibit.
