Government posters are records created for promoting policies, functions and activities. The messages conveyed are always simple, direct and meant to impress.

The precious poster collection of the Public Records Office features some of the most typical government posters from the golden era of poster production between the early 1950s and 1980s. The visual images presented here reflect not only the changes in style and design of government posters over the years but also the different facets of life during a period of important social and economic development of Hong Kong.
