Suburban Mayhem

Noticed coming out of the film ‘Suburban Mayhem’ a anti-speeding poster which reminded me of something I’d seen before..Erwin Blumenfeld’s photomontage of Hitler and a skull: “One version with a jagged hole for a nose, one blank eye socket and a gaping line of teeth was exhibited in Paris in 1937 but had to be withdrawn because the German Ambassador was so incensed by it. The Germans got to see it anyway. The United States Air Force dropped millions of copies of this photograph over German cities in 1943.”

PS: The council built anti-speed islands after a kid on the block got killed by a car. Every now and then some driver fails to see them and ramps their motor rights up and onto them.
