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.
