Little Heap of Horrors

Before it was banned red lead (lead (II, IV) oxide) was added to cement to make it rock hard. Mostly you come across the odd violent orange fleck here and there when dismantling old panels but in 11 armorial panels I am restoring it seems like they tipped their stock of red lead in both powder and liquid form into the panels...

Nightmare on red lead street!
