1935 Bugatti Automobiles Autorails Molsheim poster
Ettore Bugatti designed one of the first modern high-speed gasoline powered railway systems in the world. His first train was tested near the Bugatti factory in Alsace, France in 1933. Prior to this date nearly all trains were hauled by heavy steam locomotives.
This is a rare original factory poster showing the Type 57 (T57) and the Bugatti-made train. It was published in Frankrijk, France, in 1935 for the Alsatian distributor (Bugatti Automobiles Autorails Molsheim – Alsace). The artwork by R. Geri (who frequently worked for Bugatti) is rendered to illustrate high speed.
- This vintage poster is professionally linen mounted and measures 39×24″ / 99x 61cm. It is a first run original – printed on very thin paper – and in very good condition but with minor foxing. This was printed in lithography by A. Michel of Strasbourg, and will of course include our lifetime certificate. (x0xx)
