"L'Auvergne Pittoresque, Son site enchanteur, ses eaux minerales, rhumatisme gynecologie, la sioule et ses truites"
Translation: Picturesque Auvergne, Its enchanting site, its mineral waters, spa, rheumatism, gynecology, The Sioule and its trout
This beautiful original vintage poster advertises a natural spa in the French region of Auvergne. Many of the benefits come straight from the Sioule River, a breathtaking body of water. In the time when this poster is from, people with the smallest ailments, such as coughs, to people with a terminal illness, would flock to these spas, hoping the mountainous air would clear their immune systems.
