Malaria Death Warning

I saw this amazing post on 40 must-see photos from the past and spotted this anti-malaria warning message. The advertisement is for Atabrine, an anti-malaria drug, which was sold in in Papua, New Guinea during WWII. Skulls have always been an icon for death and here they are the main foul point for a very important warning. You don’t want Malaria now and during WWII I’m sure it was worse!
