This advert includes:

  • The earliest mention by name of the legendary Terrot Modèle H derailleur system.
  • A brief comment on the previous month’s ‘Concours de TCF’ and the strong showing by each of the three types of bicycle that Terrot had entered.
  • The explanation that the Svéa lever system used on the newly christened Terrot Levocyclette offers a choice of 12 speeds, with a mechanical rather than pneumatic gear change - whatever that means.
  • The funkiest border and chunkiest typefaces that you could hope to find - prefiguring the swinging 1960s by a cool 55 years.
