Distributed in 1946 by the U.S. Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery during the U.S. occupation of Japan after World War II, this rare poster adapts the "woman in the shadowy doorway," common in many U.S. government posters which warned of sexually transmitted disease, to the new locale. "There's Nothing New Under the Sun" makes reference to Japan as "the land of the rising sun."
