I’m not exactly sure how these images could be used in the classroom (to talk about state promotion of the family? the social ills of alcohol? gendering alcoholism?), but I think they’re fascinating. I found them at the Museum of Anti-Alcohol Posters.

“Cause- drunkenness”

“No mercy for hooligans!”

“Alcohol: Pain of nature”


“Rich inner substance”

“Have mercy on your future child”

“This new dress becomes me well”

“Harmful to health, family and descendants”

“Vodka brings with it”
