A new direction

From left to right: Metula, Jerusalem, Damascus, Malabes (nowdays it's Petach-Tikvah), Eilat, Bnei-Brak, Cairo, Bat-Yam, Haifa, Tel-Aviv

Cairo or Bat-yam?

I found this awesome napkin in these hectic days, when Israel's citizens are uprising and demanding social justice. Probably being inspired by the citizens in our neighbor countries of the Middle east.
The illustrated road signs show names of cities in Israel like Tel-Aviv and Haifa and also the cities Cairo and Damascus in a casual way, as if the whole Middle east has no borders..
I wonder if someone tried to implant a message there since the napkin is most likely to be from the early 60's when a trip to Cairo was only a wild dream. (A trip to Damascus still is a dream for me and many others I guess).

All those to Damascus to the left

I love this little police-man at the corners.. In the old days they used to stand in junctions and control the traffic instead of traffic lights. It looked something like this.
