This poster features an elegantly dressed French lady carrying a basket full of fruits. While the artist used painterly strokes for her dress, the fruits and vegetables were carefully portrayed to capture all the details to create a colorful and delicious graphic.

As the text reminds us, this poster was created to promote the Western railway in conjunction with Brighton Rail to deliver produce from Paris a Londres, or "Paris to London". The train departed from St Lazare Station in Paris and went through Rouen, Dieppe, and Newhaven. It made speedy special daily service possible, delivering fresh fruits and flowers daily to London as well as passengers. The rapid service line reveals the advancement of the technology at the time, as well as the modern lifestyle that was not conceivable before.

Jean de Paleologue (1855-1942), better known as PAL, was a Romanian born poster artist, painter, and illustrator active in France during the late nineteenth century. He produced many elegant posters featuring beautiful women. He created posters for all the popular brands of the time including Clement Cycles and many posters for liquor and entertainment venues that are still desired by collectors today.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
