Making an exception for phone camera pics on the blog for the first time because, Paris métro posters. From the 1950s ! #parismétroposterpeels heaven, yes !

Stumbled upon an almost-unimaginable treasure cove of mid-century Paris métro posters at Trinité-d’Estiennes d’Orves on our way to rue des Martyrs one Saturday afternoon.

Funnily enough, I had asked the husband earlier that day which faiencerie was responsible for the lovely decorative Nord-Sud tiling in some stations (he didn’t know) so, there you have it, the Faïencerie de Gien of course.

p/s Also eventually found out that the posters were in a much better state when they were first discovered merely two weeks before our accidental sighting, boo.
