This image appears to be part of a series of 18 posters issued during 1934 by the Department of Public Health, NSW.

A poster, most likely this image, by Aileen Sidey of 6 Highfield Road, Lindfield, was among those “commended” by the judges of the NSW Health Department’s poster competition held in 1934. About 100 designs were submitted, with Blaxland Galleries holding an exhibition in Sydney from 26 June 1934. The Minister for Health, Reginald Weaver, opened the exhibition.
