About the Poster: In the 1850s, Emperor Napoleon III called upon Baron Haussmann to "renovate Paris." Medieval neighbourhoods were demolished; parks, squares, and wide avenues were built so that civilians would no longer be able to barricade the streets or prevent the army (especially a military tank) from ploughing through the streets. Today, Paris welcomes renovations which prioritize public transportation systems, including 'purpose' lanes dedicated to buses, taxis, and, more recently, cyclists.
This poster, created in the 1970's celebrates the Transport Authority and it's bus service. In very good condition and ready to frame. From a private collection.
