Recaptioning: First Aid

I guess this is appropriate here, I can’t seem to leave these pictures alone.

Most of these are from the old Red Cross First Aid manual (4th edition, 1957), but the anti-aging device is from Doors, Windows, and Skylights by Dan Ramsey.

This gallery thing is confusing, I hope that it works.
