Commissioned by PLM Railways (Paris - Lyons -Meditteranee), this specific poster advertises travel to La Mure D’Isere. La Mure, is a commune in the Isere department located in Southeastern France. The poster features vibrant colors, with its strongest pigments in yellow and blue. In the image, the town of La Mure is illustrated in an En-Plein Air style with the bottom of the poster accentuating an image of Les Lacs which features a statue of a man on a horse and a picturesque landscape (seen on bottom left hand corner) as well as the scenic route of La Mure’s Chemins De Fer Electrique (Electric Railway) on the bottom right hand side.
PLM was a French railway company that began between 1858 and 1862. The PLM (Compagnie des Chemins De Fer de Paris a Lyon et a la Mediterranee) operated chiefly in the south-east of France, with main transit lines connected to Paris and Cote d’Azur through Dijon, Lyon and Marseille. (Wikipedia).
