About The Poster:

"Pellerin is one of the originators of toy paper models of any kind. They are also called constructions. They are usually in color. The antique models include many French buildings, many different buildings but with a particular preference for buildings in the French Empire so that Indo-China and North Africa are particularly well represented. In addition to the buildings themselves, there are lots of interior rooms with furniture. 

In 1796, Jean Charles Pellerin set up the “Imagerie d’Epinal” In France. Printed on Arches paper, pochoir (hand painted using templates) woodcuts of military subjects, Napoleonic history, storybook and folk characters, as well as flyers for businesses and political parties, alphabet literature and other educational materials, riddles, illustrated songs, and paper cutouts were widely distributed throughout the 19th century."

This paper model poster is from the Pellerin Imagerie d'Epinal collection, rare vintage French paper model from the beginning of the 20th century.  Model no914 - Automobile de Course (Motor Racing) would be a great addition to a kids room or a game room.
