"Little is known of Roedel, who never wandered far from Montmarte and who managed to insert the symbol of that quarter, the Moulin de la Galette (windmill) in almost all of his posters" (Rennert, PAI-XVI, 442)

 

The Family Faivret was not running a Dry cleaning place as you can imagine when you see this poster but was a very nice men's clothing store. Maxime Faivret invented the collar as well as the wrist cuff made out of cardboard covered with cotton, because this is the part of a shirt that gets dirty fast.
