1947: Radiation Posters

“These posters were produced at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1947.   Their purpose was to remind personnel of radiation safety practices and also to let them know what the term “Health Physics” meant, i.e. radiation protection.  In 1947 the term was only 4 years old and no less confusing then than now.”

    I’d say by the sight of these hideous mutants on the posters, the radiation exposure has already reached DNA-wrecking levels.
