During one of my walks around the city I was exploring the quarter behind Cocor store, when I happened to spot this Citroen ad up high on a building wall. It looked like an old ad, maybe one from between the wars but I couldn’t hope that something like this escaped without being destroyed during the communist years. Once home I searched the web, reading forums and found out that the add is probably from the 70s when it was painted for a movie that was shot at that location. Looks nice, nonetheless.

  1. It would be nice to preserve this, even if not genuine, these ads are disappearing everywhere!

  2. That's odd. Painting a vintage ad for a movie and then your rediscovering it later on. Well researched.

  3. i agree, it looks nice on a brick house looking b.ground, i wonder what movie was it for?… probably action flick.

  4. Impressive research!

  5. Interesting history of this "ad." It looks much older than it really is.
