English St John Ambulance Association cotton bandage sling with printed graphic illustrations of its applications in first aid. Various versions of the sling were printed in the early 1900s with illustrations updated. This example has a registered design number 7764. It is printed on cotton calico with detailed and numbered illustrations. The sides, ends and the base of the triangle are also labeled no doubt for the user’s benefit. It would have been produced on a continuous roll of fabric, and then cut into triangles along printed dotted lines -it is not hemmed. The cloth has been laundered and is clean. Condition overall is excellent.
Size: 39” x 39” x 58”.
