Good old radiation safety


Given I did an apprenticeship and worked a trade long before I became a copywriter it's no surprise I have a fascination for health & safety posters.

The one that always intrigued me when I was young was the radiation sign that was commonly seen above the workplace microwave.

No wonder I've avoided microwaves most of my life!


Last night I came across these gorgeous old radiation safety posters.

They from the late 1940's I think.

Weird thing is they're so cute I wonder if anyone actually took any notice of them back then.

Guess we'll never know.
