Here we have a rare vintage first aid medical chart. My guess it was produced in the 1930s, possibly in Pakistan. I'm working on translating the Urdu language because this one seriously needs an explanation.
Did I mention it's unique? I may have a price on the chart, but this thing is priceless. It's not only the coolest thing on your wall, it's also a very useful guide for everyday occurrences. Here are a few:
- Say you're bitten by a mean poisonous snake with an insanely big mouth and barely any other infrastructure normally present in a snake head. Refer to the chart.
- Say you find a well-dressed man lying dead on some railroad tracks. Refer to the chart. HINT: Use a cane to pull him off the tracks by his ankle. Very important.
- Say you see someone lying on their stomach and you want to poke them with a stick in the back of their neck. Refer to the chart. HINT: Stand on a towel.
- Say your lips turn brown while suffering from lockjaw, and you happen to have a square stone wedged in between your teeth. Refer to the chart.
- Say you're feeling glum and you want to throw on a floating homemade Michael Myers "Halloween" mask. Step by step instructions, thank you very much. Refer to the chart.
- Say you want to stream blood from your ankle onto your sweet, sweet jean shorts. Refer to the chart.
The oddity lithograph measures 29" X 18.5". The lithograph is secured by old netting (linen?) on the reverse, with wood hangers along the top and bottom edges. The lithograph has many tears, especially along the edges. The most significant is in the top right corner. It easily curls (see pics). I keep it together with a paper clip. There is a loss in the top left corner, and creases throughout the piece. The piece is sold AS IS. Paper restoration or stabilization through framing will benefit the piece. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship to the continental USA only. Free shipping on this one.
What else can I really say? It's so out there....so WAY out there. Watch out for those trains.
