1960's Vespa posters

I've just purchased three lovely and genuine Vespa posters from the 1960's. They're from an old scooter/bicycle shop in the south of Sweden. The size is approximately 70 cm x 100 cm so they make quite an impact.
One of the girls seems to be sitting on a Vespa with a narrower front shield. An 50 SS or a 90 SS?

Vespa 125 U parts catalogue

Here is a nice and original parts and accessories catalogue for the 1953 Vespa 125 U (Utilitaria). The registration number of the Swedish sold 125 U is scribbled on page three along with the telephone number to importer. Take notice that it is to the company "Fram-King" who were importers during the 1960's. So I guess this catalogue was passed on from the original owner to some of the next ones. Or, as the first owner had a brand new scooter he maybe didn't need a parts catalogue?
Nevertheless an interesting item of Vespa's history!
