Jeu des Cyclistes (Cyclists Game) was a popular board game made in France during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The game was available in many iterations, each featuring a beautifully detailed cover illustration. In this prewar version, a quaint village roadway is lined with members of La Belle Époque. They cheer on the exhausted winner as he crosses the finish line, alongside a four-legged entrant and some motorized race officials. Image is 1450px wide.
