Summary expansion
One side consists entirely of a color lithograph view of hikers overlooking Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the Alps from 11480 feet on Jungfraujoch, with other peaks identified in the background: Kamm, Konkordiaplatz, Eggishorn, Dreieckhorn, and Kranzberg. The drawing is signed by the artist "E.C." for Emil Cardinaux, pioneering Swiss graphic artist known for his travel posters. The other side consists of two title panels (front and rear), each illustrated by Cardinaux with a color drawing of one of the peaks: Eismeer on the front, Eigergletscher on the back. The remaining two panels contain descriptive text about the railway in English, French, and German; across the top, spanning the three paragraphs of text is a sketch map showing the route of the Jungfrau Railway. The Railway, constructed between 1898 and 1912, runs from Kleine Scheidegg to the highest railway station in Europe at Jungraujoch, almost entirely in tunnels cut through the rock of the Eiger and Monch mountains
