I photographed the Traffic Safety and Police Services Series for Russell T. Kelley in 1960. The ads and booklets were used to promote cycling safety, community/police awareness, school crossings, school bus safety, personal safety, the introduction of the slow moving vehicle sign and more.

I chose many of the locations, amateur models and even borrowed a school bus from Hillfield College. The bus was driven to Burlington and filled with the neighbourhood children and my friend as the bus driver. For the steering wheel advertisement I went to City Chevrolet and had them remove a steering wheel specifically for the shot.

When I exhibited my 50 years of photography at the Art Gallery of Hamilton in 2006, I asked retired Sgt. Ed. Selinski (the Hamilton City policeman on the motorcycle) to cut the ceremonial ribbon. BP imaging continues to supply photographic services to JAN Kelley.

Below are two images from my photographic biography The Art of Industry. On the left is a photograph that I took for The Traffic Safety and Police Services Series in 1960, Sgt. Ed. Selinski was the key subject in many of the photos for the series. On the right is a photograph I took in 1968 for the same series, I gathered some kids in my neighbourhood outside a local school in Burlington to pose for a simulated school safety scene.
