French Indochina

Vintage travel posters are a delight to see, but they can also remind us that the world can change a lot in a few decades. This poster from 1934 shows French pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry flying over the Mekong delta in French Indochina - which just a few decades later was in the headlines for years because of the Vietnam war. The design is by Romain Hugault.
