Additional Information: Original poster: CABOURG. "Casino. Grand Hôtel Noël & Pattard, propriétaires du Grand Hôtel à Monte-Carlo". Caubourg, la plus belle plage. Artist: Edouard Elzingre. Antique art nouveau stone lithograph Apparently, when the Gorton’s Fisherman isn’t out getting top-rated frozen fishsticks from the mid-Atlantic, he’s chilling in Cabourg, scooping up buxom redheads. Cabourg is on the coast of the English Channel, at the mouth of the river Dives. But the modern Cabourg began in 1853 with the arrival of two Paris financiers in search of a new site for a luxurious watering-place. The railway age had made the Normandy coast accessible to holiday-makers; Dieppe, Trouville and Deauville to the east had already been discovered; but here the adventurers found a virgin expanse of barren dunes and level sea-sands ripe for development. By the 1880s an unreal city of villas and hotels had arisen. This Cabourg is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is professional acid-free conservation mounted, linen backed, and in very good condition.
