Murder of Crows tonic

Seemingly similar to the plasmids found in the original BioShock game, the liquid contained in this vessel was shown to give the user the ability to summon an angry murder of crows during a brief in-game demo.

Port of Columbia immigration tag

This weathered paper tag hints at the eugenics thread running through the game. This official-looking form includes entries for racial origin, cranial circumference, and general mental ability. Note the 1907 date stamp as well.

Another propaganda piece inspired by a real-life poster. The 1915 original, known as "Daddy, what did you do in the Great War?" was used by British army recruiters.
