The roaring twenties, really sweet!

Could be drawn by Charles Gesmar.

Leica was obviously a hit with the ladies!

Thanks folks, nice that others appreciate these things...

FWIW, nearly 180 people have looked at it in the first 24 hours and only the five of us seem to like it.

Regards, David

RFF would benefit from < like > buttons.
The threshold between giving positive feedback by liking a post and replying to a post too high.

"...and London W1". Anyone know Leica's address in W1?

I definitely like it! Love the color and artistic style. So much so I would very likely frame it and hang it in my home or office.

I have a letter from Leitz in Mortimer Street somewhere. If I can find it I'll post it, after all, we need to know their Cable address.

I really love those hats. Must have been a great time.
My grandfather was young then, I remember him telling me he used to put a drop of petrol on his pocket handkerchief so girls would think he had a car.

It's kinda ironic (in a funny way) that an ad for a camera uses a drawing.

But I absolutely like it!

Nice!
I wonder what the modern equivalent would be?
