***********************

CYCLES PEUGEOT


Armand Peugeot returned from Leeds in England in 1882 to his native France to capitalize on the new  two-wheeled inventions that were set to revolutionize transportation throughout the world. The first two-wheeler was a penny-farthing. By 1900, Peugeot started to turn his attention to motorcycles and cars and the bicycle business eventually separated, becoming ‘Cycles Peugeot’ in 1927.

While Terrot advertisements were profuse, Peugeot cornered the market in beautifully-designed adverts and posters. These days they provide a wonderful insight into motoring history.
