Background
'Jewels of French Art', says the slogan. The small print reads, in English: 'Printed in France for and by French State Railways (SNCF).' SNCF was created in the year this was issued, combining regional rail services that were previously competing enterprises. This poster, inviting tourists to visit cathedrals throughout France, expresses that unifying spirit.
