While I slack on finalizing the first of two posts from our adventures last week, allow me to share this gem with you. It’s a map of “prophylactic stations” in Paris during WWII. I got this a few weeks ago at a sale with a few other WWII items and have been meaning to list them on eBay and just got around to it tonight. I am so naive that I thought that prophylactic just meant “preventative,” so I figured that these stations were just helping people prevent infections…like pneumonia or something. I didn’t know that it was a map of stations where you could get a jimmy hat!
Good thing my husband is smart. He told me all about WWII STD problems. Apparently the next thing Erin and I need to find are WWII posters about VD infection. Check out this one.
