Random Ad - White Lead Paint (1950's)

Click to Enlarge

An 1950's advert for White Lead Paint. This stuff was poisonious. The lead content, which in the 1950's could well be 50%, could cause damage to the nervous system, kidneys, normal development in children and fertility in adults. It is also carcinogenic. It was banned from paints intended for domestic use in 1978 in the USA and 1992 in the UK.
