Gadabout TM-1050 Advertising Poster


“Step into the all new Gadabout…”

This poster is a reproduction of an advertisement for the Gadabout TM-1050. The original was part of the same estate sale that unearthed the Gadabout TM-1050 time machine user's manual.

This artistic-quality reproduction is a must have if you are interested in vintage advertisements or time travel memorabilia.

The original, A4 size on magazine quality paper, was most likely used as an ad in a consumer magazine.  Standing to the publication date of the Gadabout, we estimate that it dates back to mid 1950's.  Of course, if we could get our hands on the time machine we could do more research on the image.

Cudworth-Hooper began in the 1920s as a supplier of farming equipment, and as their success with hog oilers grew, so did their inventory. Today there are over 36 divisions of Cudworth-Hooper, making them one of the largest manufacturers in the world. Their catalogues have grown larger every year - since they have never discontinued an item, only adding to their product list - so a complete catalog today numbers nearly as many volumes as the Complete Oxford English Dictionary.
