Cycling safety was a big issue then as is now (SWNS)

Warning posters from yesteryear show different approach to health and safety

5 December 2012

A fascinating selection of vintage health and safety posters have been discovered in a

warehouse at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and a selection

have been turned into greetings cards and postcards. The advertisements date

from the 1930s to the 1970s and cover all aspects of safety - from cycling dangers to the risks of swimming. (All pictures courtesy of SWNS)
