Vintage School Posters
I thought I'd show you some charming posters that have just been added to the "Second Childhood" department of my shop.
They are from vintage (30's, 40's & 50's) issues of Child Education magazine & were intended for use in classrooms.
The illustrations are so charming & colourful & would look fabulous framed.
The one above is "Cleaning The Rabbit's Hutch" from 1953.
The one below is "Harvest Time" from 1939 - poignant to think that such a peaceful country scene is depicted in the year the world went to war.
"Mother Goose's Village" is from 1952 & depicts all sorts of traditional Nursery Rhyme characters.
This one depicts Queen Elizabeth II leaving Westminister Abbey after her coronation in 1953.
"A Country Fair" is from 1940 - also during the war years.
There are others too - it's always amazing when something as fragile as paper survives all this time (including the war years) & they do deserve to be cherished for years to come.
