Strasbourg Chamonix Poster
30 x 42 in (76 x 107 cm)
Vintage French travel poster announcing a new train line between Alsace-Lorraine and Savoie. Illustrated on the poster is a crude, black and white map of the path the train line will take from its first stop, Strasbourg, to its last, Chamonix. Two pink-toned female travelers pose on either side of the poster, clearly eager to commence their travels.
