I'm sure most of you are aware of how fond I am of three certain motoring men, and that I am forever perusing various sources for the more unusual pieces of merchandise that I can add to my ever increasing collection.
Well, I am now about to share with you all something rather special.
This is the very first time that I have shared this treasure online, and I wanted to share it with all you lovely members of this Tribe and DriveTribe first. So, it's a bit of an exclusive!
I have a friend whose job is to post large billboard/bus shelter advertisements in public places, mainly alongside busy roads. By far some of the most prime locations to attract attention from passing drivers and pedestrians.
Every so often my friend is allowed to keep the odd billboards and posters. So, you can imagine my delight, when I found out that he'd managed to get hold of this rather Grand bus shelter poster.
Isn't it Grand?
He very kindly sprung this on me during the festive season, as a Christmas gift. To say that I was in shock was an understatement!
To give you an idea of how large it is, it's not far off the length of our settee, and i'm told that the poster is about four foot long.
In Prime position for a photo!
The last time I ever saw an advertisement like this was on a billboard back in November 2016, when it was advertised literally a few minutes walk away from where I live. I hadn't see one since until my unexpected Christmas gift.
Spotted back in November 2016
I have only had the poster out of the tube on two occasions. Once when I opened it and a second time to take photos of it.
Not sure on how to display it properly as yet, so for now it's safely back in its tube.
Perhaps you have some suggestions on how to do it justice? How would you display it?
AS ALWAYS, MANY THANKS FOR READING. I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOYED.
