"Journey Through Time: Vintage French and Italian Travel Posters at Poster France"

Description:
Step back in time and embark on a visual voyage through the captivating world of vintage French and Italian travel posters, meticulously curated by Poster France. These posters not only evoke the allure of travel but also provide a window into the rich history of railway systems in France and Italy.

The Era of Independents: Before the turn of the century in 1900, the Chemin des Fers or Railway lines of France operated as independent companies. Each train line had its own train station in Paris, with Gare de Lyon serving the east and south of France.

PLM: Unifying the Rails: The PLM, or Paris Lyon Mediterrannee Railways, gradually brought together these disparate railway companies. It was during this transition period, spanning up until 1937, that some of the most iconic French travel posters were born.

Standardization by SNCF: In 1937, the SNCF took over the PLM and standardized travel posters to a uniform 24x39 inches to fit standard frames at train stations and travel agencies.

Vintage Italian Treasures: Italian travel posters are a rare find due to the ravages of World War II. Vintage Italian posters, often bearing the ENIT logo, dating back to the 1920s and 30s, are prized gems. We proudly offer one of the largest selections of Italian travel posters on the internet.
