Description:

A beautiful image promoting sea excursions north of Paris. It depicts two fashionable ladies waiting by the seashore, the ocean full with ships behind them. A wonderful part of this image is the great manipulation of perspective seen in the portrayal of a migrating flock of seagulls flying onto the shore. One gets a great sense of their movement as they quite literally cut into the foreground of the image.  (please note minor discoloration to the top and bottom edges of the paper).
