Terrot poster - 1907?

Francisco Tamagno gives ‘L’Impertinente’ (‘the cheeky girl’) a day out in Paris featuring some ingenious cycle lighting.

Oddly for a poster that I have been assured dates from 1907, it appears to celebrate the 1910 Paris Salon du l’Automobile et du Cycle (The Paris Motor and Cycle Show) - I believe this show was first held in the Grand Palais (the building on the left) in 1910. All very confusing...

The Arc de Triomphe is strikingly backlit, presumably by the rosy glow of newfangled motor cars being torched by disaffected rioters in the distant banlieues.
