Nantes port poster, France, late 1940s

Promoting a borrowing for rebuilding it, following Allied bombing in 1943. This city, despite being a reasonable distance from the coast, has been a major commercial harbor, with facilities on the river Loire in Quai de la Fosse and the west side of the Île de Nantes in the downtown. Much of the commercial traffic has moved to Saint-Nazaire, although the river remains navigable to ocean-going ships as far as Nantes.
