Smallpox,a potentially fatal infection was known to be spread by air not water so during times of potential outbreaks public meetings were banned by health officials. This poster was a formal notice of such. Vaccinations were done at the expense of the town. This poster was from 1902 and the cost to the town was recorded in the Town Report of 1903 for the previous year.Show Details
