This northern French town on the banks of the Somme River sits 28 miles northwest of Amiens Cathedral. The image on this poster is a relic of a lost time, as the picturesque town was destroyed almost entirely by the bombings of WWII. Most of the architecture in Abbeville now is modern, a result of rebuilding after the war.
