This poster beautifully depicts "the charm and peculiarity of this great country and its tourist attractions . . . the austere nature, majestic and difficulty of access, high snowy mountains where one can practice winter sports, the welcoming, green vegetation at the bottom of the valley and a typical village perched where it will be good to rest the summer. Finally, a bus out of a tunnel suggests the many trips made possible thanks to the new road network in place" (Azur p. 226). Broders p. 87, Perry / Broders p. 66 (var), Riviera 122 and p.12, Azur 272.
