Very Early Cinelli Ad
Thanks to reader Matteo for sending this image of a very early Cinelli advertisement from Spring, 1946. "...is it an ancient warrior? NO. It is the herald that announces to the crowds the arrival of the colt of steel, the Cinelli bicycle." Note "Firenze" under the herald.
I noted that this herald also appears on the 1946 Giotto Cinelli engraved crankset that appeared in this article recently.
