STEVE AND CAROLE IN VENCE

Brochures About Vence

Steve and Carole in Vence - Brochures About Vence

In addition to books about Vence I’ve been collecting other printed materials about our town. Things like brochures, fliers, hand-outs, etc. The older the better. These types of artifacts are harder to come by than books, people don’t seem to save them as much, but I’ve found a few amazing things dating back to the 1920s.

If you have any questions about any of these brochures, pamphlets, booklets and fliers, or would just like more information, drop me an email at steve@steveandcaroleinvence.com.

1990 (?) / French

Paper

I don’t know exactly what year this map is from. I suspect it is from the 1980s or maybe 1990s, but there is no date on it anywhere. Also hard to say who put it out. Maybe the Office de Tourisme? Maybe the Chamber of Commerce? Available as a download on our website.

Paper

While on a quick glance this looks the same as the preceding map, it is indeed a different pressing. Most of the map is the same, but this one is a tiny bit larger. Additionally, the cover is slightly different, the inside has a slightly different layout and there are different ads. My guess is the two maps are at most a couple of years apart.
