Play the Game, NZ Department of Health Poster, circa 1940s -50s.
Gone are the days you could watch a game this way. With the cake tin style space ships that serve as stadia (stadiums) today you'd be hard pushed to find a paling fence to look over or peek through a knot hole.
And "play the game, any game"... today might be an invitation to become a full time couch potato playing video games. Time for a new slogan.
