Menton, France, late 1950s
A LOVELY original vintage poster of Menton on the French Riviera dating from the late 1950s and evoking the colours and mood of the Hitchcock classic 'It Takes a Thief'.
99cm x 62cm
Good. The poster has been folded horizontally just below the photograph and there are pinholes. If you would like to know more please get in touch.
The yacht is moored just off the old town, with the bell tower of the Basilica of St Michel on the hill above and, curving away to the right, the Promenade de la Mer raised on its line of arches. The poster was issued by the French government's Direction Générale du Tourisme and printed by Desfossés-Néogravures of Paris. The photographer was Trubert.
