The Foire de Paris (Paris Fair) is a major retail event that has been held annually in Paris since 1904. The Foire de Paris oozes class. The Porte de Versailles really looks the part with its monumental gateway decorated with red and silver enamels and its 30-metre high pylons, now listed as historic monuments. The Foire de Paris’ popularity is such that the world’s press heaps praise on it in countries as far away as China. In his speech delivered at the opening of the Foire de Paris, after the end of WWII, President of the Provisional Government, Charles de Gaulle describes the event as a “commitment to effort and renewal”. It is encouraging to see that the main areas are given over to industry: engineering, electricity, iron smelting and aluminum. Visitors include large numbers of former prisoners of war and deportees. They receive free admission. The Vintage Poster is an accredited vintage poster gallery. #PortofVersailles
