I saw the ad earlier on, and never for one minute did I think it had paedophilic connotations - I simply thought that @MartynG had posted it for information (which I'm sure he did).

If I did think there was anything else behind it, I would've removed it immediately.

Maybe we all over-think these things sometimes?

I think it was J W Taylor or at least his cartoon style and is well worth looking up
Did a lot of work for Punch Magazine (another gem lost in the past)

I don't see it as off-color - but on the other hand, I don't get it. What are they looking at, and what does it have to do with BP petrol and pinking?

It is a play on the name BP. so BP fuel BP (ie Banishes Pinking).

that is how it seems to me

Martin if you followed the jokes in a 1950 paper you (or even I growing up in the 50;s) would not get half of them its a different world and must be even more unfathomable to the millennials with their head down in 4"X2" bit of plastic as their only source of transient information.
We may ride 1950 bikes but we dont really understand their makers.

The man appears to have a gaze in the same direction as the girl's telescope. No idea how that could be misconstrued . As an aside I still have some cutlery stamped AIOC from when my late father worked for them in Persia. That would have been late 1940s or early 1950s.
