Rome travel poster[edit]

Original - Travel poster for train service from Paris to Rome, depicting the Temple of Saturn at the Roman Forum, 1920
Unedited version, for reference.
Reason
Early twentieth century color advertisements had gorgeous tones. I've fished this travel poster from the Library of Congress archives and tried to give it back the luster it had in 1920. The classical setting doesn't hurt for encyclopedic value.

  • weak support very nice scan - technically great - but doesn't really seem to illustrate either of those articles particularly well. The history of rail, sort of, and the temple article less so. de Bivort 17:38, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Weak support per Debivort. I actually have a bunch of posters in my house with very similar images-- I love that style of graphic design, but I agree that this image is of limited encyclopedic value for the two articles mentioned in the nom. Spikebrennan (talk) 04:38, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
