Hercules bike ad 1978

781005-hercules

An ad for a Hercules 50cc bike in Bravo of 5 October 1978. The photo is most probably from Hamburg (Astra beer, a really bad beer, is on sale in the shop, as well as Alster milk, likely named after the river in the city). The photo with the independent grocery store, the chewing gum dispenser and cigarette machine is an authentic slice of Germany city life in 1978.
