  • In the post World War II era, tourist travel was increasing as the economic surge was enjoyed by people with more leisure time and discretionary income available. With its many ski related winter destinations, it was only natural that the Government of France through its Tourist Board created a series of promotional posters for winter sports in France. In the poster designed by an artist named Jean Leger we see the 2 skiers in the background with the charming bird in a snow topped birdhouse in the foreground. This same image was also printed with French text.
