An image of this model castle featured on a poster by the East London Health Project. It formed the centre piece of a poster called ‘Passing the Buck – games for multinational drug companies’. The castle is made from real drugs and syringes. In 1978 the East London Trades Councils wanted to give information about health issues to the local population at a time when cuts were being made to the National Health Service (NHS). The East London Health Project was formed to carry out this task.
