Summary expansion
The postcards and photos are presented in chronological order, with detailed captions and entries for each day, describing the walks, the mountains viewed, and notes on food and accomodations. The group leaves Victoria Station in London on July 8, travelling through Paris, Lausanne, Ouchy, Sion, and Fiesch to reach the Hotel Jungfrau , Eggishorn which will be their base. The ladies often dine or take tea at the nearby Bettmerhorn Restaurant. Their daily walks take them to the Eggishorn, Bettmeralp, Riederalp, the Fiescher Glacier, the Ober-Aletsch Glacier, and the Märjelensee, and along the way Jane Pigott uses a Kodak 1-A camera to take pictures of the peaks, the rocky and snow-covered Alpine trails, the peasants' rough chalets, cows and goats roaming the hillsides, and a group of old and young women with large wicker baskets on their backs. The ladies spend the days hiking, eating picnic lunches by the trail, reading, sketching, and photographing the views. Pigott leaves her two friends on Aug. 7, 1913, and heads back to London, taking a carriage to Brique, and the train to Calais. Also included in the album are enlargements of two of the small photos, and a panorama postcard of the peaks near Eggishorn, printed by Julien frères of Geneva
