LIL 216 - Warning Poster June 1831

  • Description

    this poster produced prior to the outbreak warned of the dangers of cholera. At this point its transmission method was unknown as it was not until Doctor John Snow proposed a microbial origin for epidemic cholera in 1849 and in his major state of the art review of 1855 he proposed a substantially complete and correct model for the aetiology of the disease. In two pioneering epidemiological field-studies he was able to demonstrate that human sewage contamination was the most probable disease vector in two major epidemics in London in 1854
