Well it is actually Automobiles and Cyclists, but still cool. I bought this in 2007, when I was in Paris for PBP. It is for the Lyon, Savoie, and Dauphine region of France. There is no date, but from my limited french knowledge, I would speculate it if from the 1950s.
I did take more pictures, I will post more later, just a taste. they had quite a fleet of bikes on display, I assume for PBP, but it may be a more permanent display?
