"Safe Landing" is a 1946 poster created by Richard Epperly (1891-1973) for the National Safety Council. It is a wartime version of New Years Greetings; the symbolic baby parachutes into view, with a safety harness, parachute, and flight helmet to boot.

The National Safety Council is a non-profit, public service organization that is separate from the U.S. Government. It was founded in 1913 at the birth of the American Labor Movement to advocate for workplace safety.

During World War II, worker safety was a major theme of public service announcements.These messages often promoted the importance and need of production on the homefront. Other themes relating to the workforce included healthy eating, proper usage of tools, and warnings about taking too much time off from work.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
