This is 'by design', at least for Word 97, sorry

Excerpt Word/Help

I can't see the drawing objects in my document.

? You might be working in normal, online layout, outline, or master document view. To see how objects such as headers, footers, or drawing objects will be positioned on the printed page, switch to page layout view.
? The Picture placeholders check box might be selected. On the Tools menu, click Options, click the View tab, and then clear the Picture placeholders check box.

PS: Do not shoot the messanger

OK, is there a way to save the document so that the next user always opens the document in page layout view?
I did find that creating a pdf locks in the page layout view (after a fashion)
Yup, I found the same wordage on further investigation in the help file. It's sort of like a cookbook in which you are looking for Roast Beef, can't find it. It's listed under meat dishes, or main meals.

The View mode is saved with the document. This gives you two alternatives:

a) Find out who saves it in Normal View and give him/her a faster PC and/or optimize Word

b) This code, but it will trigger the macro warning

Private Sub Document_Open()
  'Ensures that doc always will open in Page Layout, regardless in
  'which mode it was saved
  'Place this code at ThisDocument level
  With ActiveWindow
    If .View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneNone Then
      .ActivePane.View.Type = wdPageView
    Else
      .View.Type = wdPageView
    End If
  End With
End Sub
