Description: Original pre-1911 French chromolith postcard for SIZAIRE & NAUDIN, a small French auto manufacturer founded in 1905. The cars were designed by Maurice Sizaire and built by his partner, Louis Naudin. With racecars, much like the one illustrated here, Sizaire-Naudin won the Coupe de l'Auto races in 1906, 1907 and 1908. By 1911, single cylinder engines were all but outmoded, and the company closed in 1921.  Very fine unused condition with slight wear and a minor corner crease at the lower right (which appears more pronounced on the reverse side (see scans).
