Marseille Point de Depart de la Cote d'Azur, 1929 ca.
Roger Broders specialized in travel posters, creating nearly 100 images for the PLM railway in the ‘20s and ‘30s. His posters of the railway's beautiful destinations were always carefully constructed and immaculately printed, evoking a golden age of travel at its peak.  This poster promotes Marseilles as a drop off point for the railway from Paris and as the gateway to the Cote d'Azur. In the Twenties, the railways developed tour bus fleets as roads throughout France became safely navigable. The poster is constructed as the opening of a tunnel where a train makes a hand-off to an auto-car. A powerful graphic below emanates from a bright red spot which leads the eye to a sweeping vista of shoreline and sea. A stunningly beautiful image with a message that sticks in your mind.
