This poster is an original first printing, not a reproduction.
The poster below, measuring 23x28cm (9×11 inches), was produced c.1913-1920. This is from the small garage in Lens, France that was personally owned by Maurice Garin from the time of his retirement until his death in 1957. The printing and paper are very typical of the time.
This poster has been archivally and professionally linen backed. Virtually all original vintage posters of this era were viewed as temporary advertising and were printed on very thin paper. While expensive, linen backing is a conservation method used to mount, stabilize, preserve and protect vintage posters so they can be displayed or framed without compromising value.
Size: 23 x 28 cm ( 9 x 11 inches)
