Details: This poster is of a vintage ad for Paris. It shows a fountain, and at the bottom it says 'Paris. Edite par les grands reseaux chemins de fer Francais' (Edited by the great French railway networks).
Paris, the capital of France, located to the north-centre of its country on a north-bending arc of the English channel-tributary river Seine. By the 12th century Paris was one of Europe's centers of learning and the arts, with a reputation for ideas and learning that gave it its nickname City of Lights.
