A very cute girl crossing a road with a big red balloon!
This motif created by the Swedish artist Per Åhlin was used as metal signs in a major traffic campaign in Denmark in the late 1950s. The campaign was a speed reduction campaign as new and lower speed limits was introduced. The sign says "watch out for me" in Danish and was placed in residential areas where playful kids often uses the street as playground.
This poster is of cause made out of paper and is lager than the actual metal sign. I believe this poster could have been used in education and was probably places in schools.
The poster is somewhat iconic and if you are Danish then you have probably seen the little girl with the red balloon. Some of the signs from the 1950s are still around and today the motif is still produced to protect the little ones.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
