Cie d'Orléans

Paris, France (Publisher, Distributor)

The Compagnie du chemin de fer de Paris à Orléans (Cie d'Orléans / Orléans railroad company) was founded in 1838 as a private railroad company. In 1934, it merged with the Chemins de fer du Midi to form the Chemins de fer de Paris à Orléans. The company is perhaps best remembered for the 1900 conversion of the ruined Palais d'Orsay in Paris into a central terminus station and hotel. The company published artist-signed poster reproductions of French chateaus and scenery as postcards.
