This time, I've come across a vintage fold-out brochure advertisement for the Raleigh RSW and RSW Compact. The paper is in excellent shape, no yellowing or foxing and the colors are vibrant. As a piece of history, this is in as great of shape as one could find. The brochure measures 5.5" x 8" in it's fully folded state, opens out in it's first unfold to 5.5" x 16" and with the ultimate fold out to 11" x 16"
Now for the pictures:
Here is the back side in its folded state. The gent attempting to get a RSW Compact into the boot. I wonder how he's going to fit that nice non-folding Flamenco Red one in there??
The brochure opens out long-wise to reveal some advertising copy and a nice photo of the RSW (with carry-all) in British Racing Green. The final unfold splits down the center length-wise to open the full page out…
Here we have a winsome blonde in 1960's appropriate short shorts letting us know that all the beautiful people should own one… On the bottom, a gent demonstrates the fold to an amazed beehived onlooker… "No loose parts!"
