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.
