At the end of the 19th Century, the bicycle was the growing mode of transportation for most people. Faced with the rising interest in the newly invented automobile, bicycle companies made effective use of the poster medium to promote their products. This is a particularly fetching example; a course-ready model is on display. The text informs us that this bicycle is "elegant, graceful, and sturdy". The blank banner on the bottom would have been filled in by hand with the details of the closest local seller of Ed brand bicycles.

What Does 'Original' Mean?
We only deal in original vintage posters, never reproductions. This means that every poster is from the original print run, in the year listed in the description. Everything we sell comes with an individually signed certificate of authenticity, which we fully guarantee.
If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
