Vintage French travel poster advertising the quaint town of Angers, one of the stops on the Paris to Orleans railway. Illustrated on the poster is an image of the town, the charms of its medieval architecture on full display—the grand cathedral rising above the rooftops in the background. The poster purports to be promoting the automobile circuits of Angers, but this old-fashioned town doesn't seem as if a car has every seen its secluded roads.
