Raleigh RSW Ephemera: Vintage Adverts

OK, a couple more tidbits I came across on eBay.

The first is a vintage 1965 photograph of a British model named Jenny White posing with a folded Raleigh RSW.  The back side of this photo has writing that indicates that this photo was to be used in official advertising copy for magazines and newspapers of the time to introduce the Raleigh RSW.

The second image is of an original magazine advert from the 1960's.  I'm not really sure what magazine or what the date is.  OK, sexism was pretty rampant in the 60's…

I have both of these framed now and hanging in our office at home.  I still get a few sideways glances from the lady of the house…  :-)
