o (?) RAPHAËL - quinquina

A remarkable wall with several layers.
I did accentuate what I think belongs to the Raphaël layer. I can't find any 'St'; 'o' seems to be the replacement.
The brand's waiters are present. The arm and the bottle of the right person are just emerging from behind the white eyesore.

The picon part of the wall.

Very nice wall with the waiters and the good old statement St-Raphaël - quinquina.

Traces of some experimenting with the type face, though.

Two walls of the same house.
Both sides say St-Raphaël - quinquina and en vente ici (you can buy it here) but the right-side wall shows two layers: one with the brand in small print above the waiters big in the center of the wall and the second one with brand name in kingsize writing with the waiters on top.

Compare this drawing with the Angos mural earlier on this page.
The waiters lost their elegance. Observe how the bottom line of the text is curved. It is a typical Vichy trick.
Notice the difference with all our other finds: the waiters are kept apart by the drink's name.

And then came the time to change the typeface

Lons le Saunier (RN78, France),
May 1999; pict. M. Duhamel
 
It was in 1952 when it, after 12 years, became possible again to advertise for apéritifs. Saint Raphaël ruled the walls with a new face. Everything was different.
They changed the type face from the easy roman to an almost unrecognizable italic. The waiters are reduced to less than the minimum; you can barely recognize a white bottle. The base-line goes up and the composition is disturbed by the black triangles. Disgusting.

We have a Chocolat Menier wall maltreated in the same way by the same brand.
