This collection of public information posters from the period 1945-75 is published in conjunction with the National Archives, where the original posters are located. The posters provide a fascinating insight into the policies and priorities of successive postwar governments, covering everything from the jobs people did, the food they ate, the amount of alcohol they drank and cigarettes they smoked to the wearing of motorcycle helmets and seat belts, road safety for children and Keep Britain Tidy campaigns. It includes almost fifty posters, over forty of them with perforations so they can be removed from the book and displayed.
