1959 Original Russian Poster, Keep Away from Water's Edge

This is an original Soviet poster created to increase awareness about water safety and the importance of keeping children away from the hazardous shoreline. Full headline reads: "How long before there is trouble? Parents, don't allow small children to come near the river to avoid accidents on the water..." Personally, without the translation, I thought this was a perfectly lovely Russian travel poster. Perfectly retro, perfectly Soviet ... 

Poster has been folded for many years, but remains in overall very good condition.
