Energetic Charwoman Rides Motorcycle Seeking Business

THE advertising charwoman has made her appearance upon the streets of London. Determined to build up her clientele, this energetic worker purchased a cheap second hand motorcycle with a large delivery-type sidecar. She rides about the city, dressed in her scrubbing clothes. In the sidecar, well displayed, are her mops, brushes, brooms and ladder. On the sides of the car, she has a sign proclaiming her as “The Travelling Char” and inviting prospective customers to stop her.

This woman reports that the novel means of advertising has brought her a splendid increase in income.

    In these rough times this kind of innovation could be used again. Of course now she’d probably get a ticket for unsecured cargo and no back up horn.
