Fight Tuberculosis with Modern Weapons (1.8 megs), and other striking and evocative historic public health posters from asbestos to huffing, and beyond. Featuring intelligent critical commentary, especially in the HIV/AIDS and Anti-smoking sections. (All images available in high resolution). From the US National Library of Medicine, which has presented an impressive series of health-related displays over the years. (Via the estimable Artifact)

Thanks - there's a lot to poke around in at these sites.
