Nursery-Rhyme-Bromley-Times-1917The London General Omnibus Company often created adverts like this in local newspapers to help inform readers about the dangers of the road, titling them as “Nursery Rhymes for the Present Times”

This one for instances warns of the dangers of sitting on the kerb:

 

“Little Miss Muffet, instead of a tuffet,

Sat on the kerb one day;

Along came a lorry, and now she is sorry,

Her feet having got in the way”

 

Taken from the Bromley & District Times, February 1917
