Paris' Iconic Galeries Lafayette through Vintage Photos, Posters and Ads

 Les Galeries Lafayette Print from 1912

I recently acquired a beautiful original 1923 Art Déco poster advertising the iconic Parisian department store, Galeries Lafayette. It features a high-heeled elegant lady sitting literarily on top of the world bragging about the store's successes using flowing ribbons (you can check out the further below). This has inspired me to take a look at the spectacular history of the store and see what other interesting advertisements, posters and other graphics I could dig up.
