Title: Fallout Protection pamphlet (1961)
Description: Booklet issued by the U.S. government and distributed in U.S. post offices in December of 1961.
Location: ICI Photo Cabinet (digital/from the internet)
Discussion: The pamphlet was distributed at Christmas time to allow for family discussions over Christmas dinner. Notable for its strong use of visuals and d-i-y instructions that encourage you to ‘try this at home.’ Its general conclusion is: you can survive a nuclear bomb if you’re prepared and you have a handy person around to keep you safe.
