Graphic, violent old public safety posters from Holland

vnBsJsh

Man, these vintage Dutch safety posters from the early through late 20th century are scary and beautiful as hell. If you're squeamish, maybe don't click. The messages are also blunt, with no attempt at making people feel good about bad things that befall others.

Below, "Have every wound of any significance taken care of. This mutilation is his own fault. He messed up himself."

More here, with translations.
