If the war comes…

We inherited this book from the 1960s that was apparently given out to Swedish citizens. It’s called “If the war comes” and it’s an instruction book on what to do in the event of war. In my opinion, the best parts are the nicely dressed 1960s housewives with their pretty skirts and gas masks. They seem totally unconcerned. A close second is the men in suits. Gotta look sharp when the nuclear bomb drops. Here’s a few pictures from the book:

The Ikea table can withstand an atomic bomb. Don’t forget to casually put on your gas mask! Watch that hair!

Stop, drop and roll is universal.  I like the look on his face as his suit is on fire. It’s a look of mild discomfort.
