Sea and Tourism Network. Illustrated map of the French State Railways. 1934. Lithographic poster. Perceval - Paris. Folded, fair condition: one restored tear along the right border and running down into the image (31 cm), stains in the margins and lettering band. Vivid, fresh colors. 99.5 x 62 cm "Until 1934, Les Chemins de fer de l'État took over private companies, to form the Réseau de la Mer serving the seafront from Dieppe to Bordeaux. The main argument of this poster is to show travelers the extent of this network and give them a taste for discovery... Although this document dates from the thirties, Lucien Boucher deliberately refers to the old nautical charts of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, with a compass rose or a marine divinity calling future bathers". Royan. Encyclopedic living memory.
