The prestigious ‘Train Bleu’ pauses at Cannes in the early 1930′s. The engine is a PLM ‘Mountain’ (4-8-2), nicknamed ‘Cigare’ because of its paraboloid-shaped smokebox door. The type was first introduced in 1924. The station depicted here does not exist today – the railway has virtually disappeared underground and a beautiful setting has been lost for ever.
