2016 France/Vintage Travel Wall Calendar


A hotbed of modern European art and culture in the early twentieth century, France attracted tourists in droves. Rail companies hired artists to produce posters of scenic highlights found at a route stopover or famous terminus: sunset-swathed cathedrals, quaint villages, iconic architecture, and towns that scramble up lush hillsides. From mountains to coast, city to countryside, the posters present an ideal location for just about any traveler. This calendar’s posters come primarily from the interwar period, boom years for French tourism that by 1928 placed the country first among European destinations.
