I think of this photo often. It has been lost for years in my archives. When I snapped it on my first trip to London, back in 1980, I thought it was hilarious. As a descriptor of this past year (the past four years, as a matter of fact), it is not funny at all.
This sign is on a big, metal, yellow-orange box that was humming in the heat. Was this box the ‘equipment’ and it had automatically started? If not, where was it and what did it do and, most importantly… WHAT WAS SO DANGEROUS?? With no answers in sight, at least I got a selfie.
This ‘Caution Kids at Play’ sign seems to be adapted from a ‘Caution Slippery Floor’ sign and transplanted to a telephone pole from a school corridor.
