Vintage Japanese Public Health Posters

Public health posters produced by the Industrial Welfare Association which was set up in 1925 by Japan's Bureau of Social Affairs to promote healthy lifestyle among Japanese workers and their families. This poster says, "Sun tanning is paradise, catching a cold while napping is hell... Beware of catching colds from napping. It is an illness which originates from incaution." I didn't know you can catch a cold while having a nap.
