Original, vintage, small format promotional poster for Armstrong bicycles, celebrating the record-breaking achievements of the French rider Henri Breau at Herne Hill velodrome in 1924. Armstrong Cycles Limited was started by Henry Fearn in 1918. By the 1920s it had become a significant manufacturer in the Birmingham area and was later taken over by Rayleigh Cycles.
