1940’s STD Poster: “She May be a bag of trouble”

Don’t judge a book by its cover — except when it comes to adult Red Riding Hood looking women with perfect ly manicured eyebrows, thick, black eyelashes who smoke cigarettes with luscious red lips to boot. Because if you see one of these these types wandering around, she will be riddled with STDs like syphilis and gonorrhea.

No offensive, false scare tactic in this ad at all (cough-cough).
