    A silence sign, ubiquitous in hospitals and clinics in Spain from the late 1960s to the late 1980s. The text, which uses Baby Teeth, says Por favor (Spanish for “please”). Nurses stopped using the uniform that appears in the photo in the 1980s. The sign was (also) produced in the form of a postcard.
