Opera de Toulon programme 1928 - Chemineau main image

This advert, from the programme of the Opéra de Toulon, offers the gilded, cuturally sophisticated, elite of that city the chance to purchase a 3 or 6 speed Le Chemineau bicycle, or, failing that, to add a 2 or 3 speed Chemineau L’Izoard derailleur system to their existing bicycle.

This advert was placed by the Toulon dealer for Le Chemineau (A. Bettini & Cie), who was clearly in intense competition with the local dealer for Cyclo, (R. Audemar), who placed an identically sized advert in the same publication and, according to Google maps, was based less than a kilometre away.
