The roadsign from Jinja is most interesting because it shows a primitive feature: the warning triangle of age. Almost none survived in the wild, but we have seen a single specimen also in Trinidad & Tobago and in India.

The drawing is just like in all countries having met the United Kingdom somewhere during their history. It shows the girl dragging her younger brother into the traffic.

Good point is that several variations are still around.

Interesting to note that there is even some variation preserved in the modern warning signs for a parent with child walking on the road.

Notice the neck, the feet, the hips, …
