"The French Western Railways and the British LB & SC Line jointly promote trips to England to French travellers, a free guide to London is yours into the bargain. And the policeman will only be too happy to help you, too, particularly if you're a sweet young innocent"
(Rennert, PAI-X, 255)

"Grun lived in the bohemian quarter of Paris and frequented its many cafes and bars. Trained in decorative arts, he started to design their interiors and stage decors and soon was also producing posters. His revellers express the very mood of the Parisian tenderloin, light-headed, with fun occupying every thought. The women especially exude an aura of charm with a hint of naughtiness that is Grun's own"
(Gold p.104)
