About The Poster: Inscribed, "Chemin de fer du Nord par Dunkerque, les plus riches contrées sont en relation avec tous les points du globe," this poster is advertising the French railway system through Dunkerque, emphasizing their connectivity to other important port cities across the globe and the efficacy of French industry and trade. Dunkerque was, and remains today, an important port city due to its proximity to Amsterdam, London, Brussels and Luxembourg. Signed in the lithographic plate by artists G. Delecourt and A. Urbain, it was printed by the imprimerie Chaix in Paris in 1924.
In excellent to very good condition this poster has recently been professionally linen lined in order to protect its physical integrity. Measuring 29.25 x 41.5 inches, this poster would be a great conversation piece in a living room, office or would be a fabulous way to spruce up a corridor. The combination of the painterly scene highlighting the port of Dunkerque, bold font and graphic railway map make this poster extremely appealing to the eye and will surely delight viewers of all ages.
