Out with the old, and in with the new! This classically designed Belle Epoque poster advertises the Cycles Gladiator company as cutting edge. A modernly dressed man literally outpaces traditionally dresses equestrians at a horse race track. He looks over his shoulder with a smirk; he is clearly proud to be pedaling forward with progress.

The Gladiator Cycle Company was in business from 1891 - 1920, a period considered by many as the heydey of cycling. It was a period before the automotive industry took over as the main form of transportation. Cycles Gladiator was an early producer of cars and motorcycles, as well. While the company went through many changes in ownership and did not last long after the end of WWI, it is widely known today for its beautiful advertising posters.

  • 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.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
