||Original, horizontal linen backed Thomann bicycles advertising poster,
Two elephants battling to hold onto a bicycle with their trunks, inscribed 'Inutile D'Insister, C'est Une Bicyclette Thomann'. The company was taken over after WWII. This tinge of nostalgia helped remind Frenchmen of the country’s wonderful early years of glory during the very beginning of the bicycle, motorcycle and autombile industry. Lettering is in vibrant orange with medium dark blue background. Gaillard, Paris.
