Allegro, 1930 ca

Artist Unknown poster: Allegro

The adventure of the open road is the essence of this dynamic poster for Allegro, the leading Swiss bike and motorcycle manufacturer before World War II. A solitary cyclist races down a highway with the rising sun at his back.

Started by three bicycle-crazy brothers in 1914, the business produced a peak of 20,000 bicycles per year before the war.
