Safety matches

For no particular reason, here's some 1950s public safety information from behind the Iron Curtain, as disseminated through the medium of matchbox cover art. I particularly like the inattentive tourist with the map and loud suit, who looks like a more rounded version of The Good Soldier Svejk, minus Svejk's instinct for self-preservation.

Don't have nightmares, comrades!
