Late 1950's Rudge Poster

     This is an amazing Rudge poster we recently got. It is from the late 1950's - early 1960's. The dimensions are 31' wide by 41" tall. We promptly got it framed, and it looks wonderful. The condition is perfect, the colors are beautiful, and the content and typography are great. We also have a Raleigh poster that is identical in size and subject matter. The Raleigh poster is more sexually suggestive. I like this one much better because it is more subtle and wholesome. Sex being used to sell bicycles is nothing new and there is a lot of more crass examples out there. enjoy the photos!
