Vintage Indian Public Health Poster: Rules of Sleeping. Doesn't really seem like a good nap needs coaching, but 1960s India made rule charts for everything, with bullet points including not sleeping with another person. Gasp! The horror! The Cleavers would be proud. Estimated at around 45-60 years old, these scroll charts hung in schools, community centers and public gathering places as a way to encourage good hygiene and proper moral behavior.
