"The rat spreads diseases. Eradicate it!"

..so says this mid-century rat control campaign poster with a picture of a large infected and injured rat.

With the adoption of the so called "Rat Act of 1938" which required local authorities to combat rats the fighting was systematized. In 1940/41 a new alternative poison to control rats was approved - chopped and boiled onions added smoked herring and flour. The poison had to mixed in the right quantities and chopped in a specific and certain ratio before it had any effect. Then the poison was packed in portions and ready for use. Making the poison required quite a lot of working hours and was thus very costly so that method of making poison was abandoned again.

This poster is quite a thing to decorate your walls with and I am sure that every visitor in the future home of this poster will have an opinion about this magnificent piece of rat history.
