About The Poster:
A fabulous Art Deco poster advertising the joys of traveling by train in France during the summer - designed by Dagoussia in the 1930s.
The SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer français; "French National Railway Corporation"), is France's national state-owned railway company. Begun in 1938, it used posters from its inception to advertise the multitude of destinations which were served by its rail-lines. We feel that this poster, created shortly after the company itself was created a wonderful testament to Art Deco design: strong colors and visuals which pop, clean graphic design and great typography. Classic! The poster is lined-backed and in very good condition.
We feel fortunate to have received this poster and a variety of others for the French National Railways - all in very good condition - from a private collection, put on the market here for the first time.
