Description

The London, Midland & Scottish Railway offered connections to boat trains to Dover. It was possible to book tickets on French railways in London by the 1930s. Most people still took their holidays in Britain, but it was becoming increasingly common to go abroad on holiday. This poster advertises what France has to offer: 'Sea - sunshine, the Riviera and the Basque Coast, Normandy, Britttany, Picardy, the Atlantic Coast; Mountains, sun and snow - the French Alps, the Vosges, the Jura, the Pyrenees, Auvergne and Cevennes; Art and history - the chateaux country, Roman and medieval France'.
