Oh for an Austin 7!

A stunning print from an original poster advertising the Austin 7 chummy. Note the humorous registration plate RU412. The poster demonstrates the benefits to the family of the time of car ownership. I believe that the family walking are dreaming of having an Austin 7 and they are pictured in the car.

An A3 print (29.7 x 42 cm) from the original poster of the 1930s, it will be packaged in a strong postal tube. An A2 print is also available.  Contact Noble Arts on  or buy via their website:
