This poster advertises the fun of mountaineering in the beautiful country of France. Mountaineering is also referred to as mountain climbing, or alpinism. The French Alps are known as the birthplace of modern mountaineering, offering tourists and locals the opportunities to climb the famous Mt. Blanc - Europe’s highest peak, Mt. Chamonix, Montagne Sainte Victoire, and Tour Ronde.

The poster features a chamois goat, an appropriate mascot of mountaineering, tromping atop of stylized mountains with snowy caps. The top of the poster reads "For the joys and thrills of mountaineering, choose France."

Unfortunately, there is little information on Lancaster, the artist of the poster.
