      ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) FOIRE DE LYON. Circa 1920.
      41 3/4x30 1/4 inches, 106x77 cm. Cornille & Serre, Paris.
      Condition B+: repaired tears and restoration in margins and image; abrasions in image; crease through lower right corner.
      The Foire de Lyon became a yearly event in 1918. There is no specific indication of which year this poster is advertising, but we know that it must be prior to 1925, as this was the year Broders changed the appearance of his signature. Prior to 1925, his signature was more cursive; after 1925 he began to sign his work with the letters of his name all in uniform size. Broders p. 58A, Perry / Broders p. 42.
