Mighty Hercules

If these Hercules advertisements from the 1920s and '30s don't make you fall in love with cycling all over again, then sir: your heart is dead.

For more Hercules goodness, visit the (virtual) Hercules Museum blog


  1. Oh these ads are just fantastic, thank you for posting them. I can't believe the child model loop frame in the Popular L ad!

  2. Glad you liked the advertisements! It's hard to imagine any bicycle maker putting such care into their ads today, but then they don't put as much care into their bicycles today, either.

    Thank you for visiting, and for your nice comments. (I really must set up e-mail notification of comments, so I don't let 4 days lapse before I respond.)
