Description: MERCER RACER 1914, artist Herve Morvan (1917 - 1980) "MERCER RACER 1914" is an original archival linen backed horizontal poster, ready to frame, excellent condition. Herve Morvan created this Mercer Race 1914 image that was used in conjunction with of all things; a Alsacin Banania cookie poster. This may be the reason that the boy is holding this early automobile high in the air rather than sitting behind the wheel racing a Mercer. An interesting fact about antique posters is that the image did not always have to do anything at all with the product that was being sold. This is why we list this original vintage poster under automobiles. The job of the image was to catch your attention and sometimes make you stop and think. Cappiello was always very good at using this technique in his antique vintage posters that he produced. Mercer was an American automobile manufacturer from 1909 until 1925. It was notable for its high-performance car. Eddie Pullen won the American Grand Prix at Santa Monica of 1914 in a '450' Mercer averaging 77.2 mph over a 403 mile road course. A new American record at Corona, California averaging 87.89 m.p.h. a flat course world record. This was the first American Car to win the American Grand Prix: At Santa Monica California on 2/23/14 averaging 77.2mph.
