W. Smithson Broadhead

This is an old advert from 1920 for The Aeolian 'Vocalion'. The superb colour illustration is by W. Smithson Broadhead. This featured in The Connoisseur magazine. Sadly most of these high quality publications have now been destroyed by dealers cutting out all the advertising, and colour plates within, and selling them on Ebay. It is getting very difficult to find many complete issues left.
