The Highway Code

The Highway Code by the Minister of Transport (published by His Majesty’s Stationery Office, 1946)

Introduced by Anne Brichto of Addyman Books, Hay-on-Wye

For #WoodcutWednesday I introduce this 13 X 10cm copy of The Highway Code issued by the Minister of Transport published by His Majesty’s Stationery Office in 1946. It was priced at One Penny Net.

This wonderful design is repeated on the back of this 32 page booklet. The stopping distances are printed on the inside of the rear cover. There are sections for horse-drawn vehicles and people in charge of driven animals. They don’t make them like this nowadays!
