|Artist Unknown. c. 1936. Dover Press.|
Unfortunately, the artist is unknown, but his use of light and shadow and the point of view from passenger to the ground is unusual.
France had many colonies in Africa in 1936 and if you look at the brochure in the man's hand, it shows the air route. Can you name the six colonies that are part of the air route? The first one is Algeria. They are the black dots on the map. It does not include Morocco or Madagascar. Clicking on the poster makes it larger.
The gentleman has two bars over his jacket and the lion or Griffin could be the insignia of the airline or something else. Any ideas?
I appreciate your comments, they do not have to be about the poster.
