“Easy train access from St. Lazare Train Station!”

Levallois-Perret is the most densely populated town in all of Europe. In the 19th century, large finds of flint tools in the town (then a village) lead archaeologists to name a distinctive type of stone knapping ‘Levallois’ after the town.

Lithographer: A. Mansion

Lastly, the poster has a tax stamp on the bottom right with the name of the Printer stamped on top of it.
