On a sunny day, two friends are on their way to play tennis. They are riding on the shining bicycles produced by Automoto, and happily waving the tennis rackets to us. Their tanned skin and big smiles are giving the bicycle manufacturer a healthy image.

Automoto was a French bicycle and motorcycle manufacturer founded in 1902. It was based in St Etienne, the "cycling capital of France", and had multiple factories. It joined with the Peugeot Group in 1930 and was fully absorbed by 1962. The firm specialized in the manufacture of high-class and sturdy motorcycles with its own engines, and also proprietary engines made by Chaise, Zurcher, J.A.P., Villers and, after 1945, A.M.C.
Maurice Lauro (1878-?) was a French printmaker. Although there is limited amount of information about the artist, he is known for a series of poster he had done for the Automoto company.

  • 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.
