No, ParisDailyPhoto did not go to the Deep South to take this one ! It’s the decoration on an old building on the shopping street, rue de Montorgueil. I wasn’t able to find out more about its origins, but I imagine by the painting depicted, it once housed a coffee or sugar distributor. The writing at the bottom means “no subsidiary”, meaning you have to buy it here or nowhere else!
Of course you notice how derogatory this "advertisement" was towards the African population. Fortunately, this would not be possible today.
