A wonderful original vintage railway poster promoting the electrification of the Simplon line. The Emil Cardinaux rendering from 1928 depicts a type Ae 4/7 locomotive passing the Chillon Castle by the lake shores. Peaking mountains in the background.
The Simplon Railway is a line that links Lausanne in Switzerland and Domodossola in Italy, via Brig. The 20 km long Simplon Tunnel is a major part of it.
Emil Cardinaux is considered as the father of Swiss travel posters.
This is a very rare Dutch version of the poster. In excellent condition.
