Ellis of the Seattle Bubble Blog sent me this quaint Cold War-era Seattle Civil Defense M anual circa 1951 explaining how exactly to survive

an atomic bomb.

Specifics include how to build your own personal bomb shelter, tips for the aftermath of a blast (“wait at least one hour to give lingering radiation some chance to die down!”), which areas/landmarks would be hit first (no harshing on Tacoma and Everett!), how it kills you, and more. The pamphlet is rounded out with a long list of “subversive organizations” from the House Un-American Activities Committee. I don’t see France on the list.

    I always knew those Commies wanted to nuke the Ballard fishing fleet…

    I love Cold War propaganda! They are always great for a good laugh.

  3. josh says:

    amazing find! great to have on hand, just in case

  4. Ben Lukoff says:

    This is awesome! And hey, it might have been propaganda, but the fears were very real… Cliffe, would you like to see a map of evacuation routes? I have one somewhere and could scan it…..

  5. Ben Lukoff says:

    Odd..it’s not where I thought it was. Perhaps I only ever saw it at the MOHAI Library. Darn!

  6. Cliffe says:

    I’d love to see it. Let us know if you find it.

  7. billvb says:

    Hey, look, the ACLU hadn’t made it on The Enemies from Within list yet.

  8. Matt G says:

    Great find.

    You can still see fallout shelter signs all over downtown. The one I’ve been inside of (I believe it’s Xplore Fitness) certainly doesn’t have a fallout shelter anymore. But I wonder if any of the shelters are still in working order.

    I’m glad the US of A has staid the course and not given into these commie bastards. Make no mistake, Fidel (commie), Bin Laden (commie/muslim), and Saddam (commie/dictator) lunched together and they hate America, just like the Liberals do.

  10. Brian says:

    Actually bin Laden would be a fascist, not a communist…he’s a right wing extremist not a left wing extremist. But I do agree with Chloe that many who call themselves liberals are actually communists. A true liberal loves America and capitalism and individual LIBERTY (hence the word liberal). But if they are against corporations etc., that’s not a liberal, that’s a communist.

    Brian: Chloe was being sarcastic.

    I find it incredible that a lot of comments on this poo-poo the real threats we faced then and still do now. as if Kruschev wasn’t an insane and very dangerous drunk with his finger on the nuclear button. Only in Seattle and San Fransico will you find such tepid, childish remarks. It really is striking.

  13. Bruce H. says:

    I found something similar to this when my wife and I were remodeling our kitchen in our first house. It was dated around early to mid 50′s. It was more of a tri-fold pamphlet. With the “Ground Zero” clearly mark. And evacuation routes and where to meet. Very Cool!!! Still have it today. I had found it….maybe 1987??

    I also found a Superman photo from that same era. With the “Thanks for watching” autograph by George Reeves.

    EVEN COOLER!!!!

  14. This website definitely has all of the info I needed about this subject and didn’t know who to ask. | tickets air flight http://www.funtraveldeals.com/book-flights/

  15. My spouse and i have been quite fulfilled when Jordan could deal with his inquiry through your precious recommendations he discovered out of the web site. It is now and again perplexing to simply always be making a gift of tips that people today could have been selling. And now we remember we have the blog owner to be grateful to for that. All the explanations you’ve made, the simple blog navigation, the relationships your site give support to create – it’s got everything superb, and it’s really leading our son and our family understand this content is brilliant, which is certainly pretty essential. Thank you for all!
