Les Gorges du Tarn (Lozère, France)


A FINE original vintage poster from 1956 showing the Gorge of the Tarn river in southern France. 

Size  60cm x 40cm

Condition  Very good.  If you would like to know more please get in touch.

Background The gorges are a famous canyon cut into limestone uplands by the river Tarn as it flows westward. The poster shows part of the most spectacular stretch, the ‘détroits’ or straits, with one of the small tourist boats traditionally operated by the Tarn ‘bateliers’. The province of Languedoc no longer exists: it is part of today’s Occitanie region.
