Keep Calm by boobookittiefuck Keep Calm by boobookittiefuck
Keep Calm and Carry On. Poster from the basement at my work, it used to be a bank so it had a reinforced basement with vaults, safes etc. Because of this it was used as a Bomb Shelter during WW2, and they left these posters up about the place. Quite good condition seeing as they were put up in 1941..

I would have to say, this is probably the world's most popular propaganda.

That's cool, I've never seen before a real "keep calm..." poster. Historic old things have sort of a mysterious halo that always amazes me.

Wow :D

How lucky, to be able to see something so old, and in such good condition. D: I'm jealous.

Yeah it's pretty cool huh? Imagine all the people who brushed past it.. Actually I went into a shop last week and was surprised to see that they sell the poster as a tshirt, a tea towel and a mug! Exactly the same!

An interesting thought when the sign is coming down in tatters.
