OBVIOUSLY AN ORIGINAL this old cardboard backed display poster measures 14 X 10 1/2" in size. There are pin holes around edges and some creases and ink marks as seen on the pictures. I think this model dates to the 1920's....a great original for any collector of car memorabilia. Founded in 1905 by Louis Delage Rue Cormeilles in Levallois-Perret, the company was initially just an assembly plant, buying engines and chassis from other manufacturers for the dress body parts. The first model was a Delage Type A motor-cylinder De Dion Bouton 9 ch.

In 1907 the factory moved to rue Baudin Levallois in order to grow with 4 000 m2 workshop. That year, Delage won the Grand Prix of France at Dieppe (500 km) at an 80 km / h average.

In 1908, the success enabled the development of the factory and entry into the Grand Prix races. In 1912 the factory moved to new boulevard de Verdun Courbevoie always expand. The following year, production of clean starts, and the creation of advanced bodywork. The brand Delage began to win important races until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, when the new plant in Courbevoie is converted to military use.
