MATTERHORN and Swiss High Alps. A collection of over 50 private photographic slides of climbing tours in Switzerland, including an ascent of the Matterhorn and tours in the surrounding area. Britain, c. 1926.
Each slide measuring 82 mm square, in good condition (one damaged not counted); few with later captions, later numbering; in a contemporarary spruce wood slide box with groves inside. A little worn and spotted.
Some breathtaking photos of high Alpine glaciers, crevasses, and distant views of mountains, including one with a climber on the summit of the Matterhorn, others of climbers with ropes, and one woman, later labelled the 'Mountain Cat'.
