About this item

Vintage Official Michelin Map of the Tour de France 1954

The official map of the Tour de France 1954, issued across France by Le Parisien newspaper group for newsagents to follow the contest and participate themselves in a competition to win 5 million Francs.

Detailing the route and elevation of each of the stages of the race, along with details of the teams and the race rules, the map is covered with vintage advertising for the big name brand, Michelin, with the tagline "des mois sans gonfler".

On the map of France, which plots the route of the race in red, the competition is announced in the top left hand corner, "find the deliberate errors on the map to win". The grid to the bottom left of the map has been left blank in order to follow the race itself and far bottom left corner has been removed. This is because it was stamped with the name of the newsagent to which this particular map was issued and subsequently returned to Michelin head office, along with the newsagent's entry to the competition.

Good vintage condition, ideally to be framed.

A lovely piece of French history.
