Mod Adverts

The fifties and sixties saw a refreshing style in the graphic arts as well as product design. Eames’, Saarinen, Nelson et al. Here is a threesome of Meriden product promotion in slick and swift handed period illustration.

The first is a pair of Trophy towed by a Ford Cortina (I recall the tail-light of the Mk 1 my Pa had in the mid 70’s)

Carnaby Street revellers enjoy a post Bonneville jaunt.

…and finally a Speed Twin is admired by a cool crowd.
