    If you are looking at these "cold war" self help books, please take the time to click on the photos so that you can read the enlarged print. I think you will, if you are like me, find them all very interesting. This was of course the e-vac routes for my city but civil defense would have had the same things printed up for your area as well. I would have hated to have lived back then, with a family, and had to worry about complete utter annihilation. Very very unpleasant if you ask me. Whewww...

      These are awesome. "A distance of 25 miles or more should be adequate" and "do not attempt to pick up your children at school…"

      Yea right. Like I'm leaving without my two boys. Typical govt operation. As usual it makes no sense and it "will not" work. Things sure haven't changed much in the last 50+ years. Thanks for the comment philfreo.

      whoa, like you said, good thing you didn't have to live through that. We might again one day in our lifetime. Those are cool. Looking at the rest of your stuff.

      Thanks wannabeapicker2. They do wake one up to the stark possibilities that we may one day face. Thanks for taking a peek. Glad you enjoyed.
