Today I have a vintage Rolls-Royce Advertisement from a publication dating back to 1932.
The Rolls-Royce advertisement is plain and simple; there’s an illustration of the car in front of bright rays of light and a bold claim in the tagline: “Rolls Royce – The Best Car in the World”.
I remember as a child seeing a photograph of my grandfather stood in front of a rolls outside his home; I was told it was his. At the time I believed what I was told but I laugh now as my grandfather lived in a small pit village, worked as a miner and didn’t have 2 ha’pennies to rub together!
This is an original scan of the advert:
This is my re-touched, cleaner version:
- Rolls-Royce was an electrical and mechanical business established by Henry Royce in 1884.
- Royce built his first motor car in 1904; in the same year he met Charles Rolls, whose company sold quality cars in London.
- Rolls-Royce Limited was incorporated in 1906 and developed a reputation for superior engineering quality.
- In 1910, at the age of 32, Rolls was killed in an air crash.
- Royce designed his first aero engine – the Eagle in 1914.
- The Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust was formed in 1981 to promote and preserve the history and engineering excellence of Rolls-Royce.
