Summary expansion
The owner of the album is not identified, but the photographs and photographic postcards document the mountain climbing trips he made with friends between Sept 1929 and Sept 1932. The eight trips are documented in chronological order: Erstfeldertal, Sept. 11-13, 1929; Säntis (Sentis) and Altmann in the Appenzell Alps, June 19, 1930; Glärusch Mountains, July 11-14, 1930; Schesaplana, Sept. 1-2, 1930; Piz Sol (Pizol), Wildsee, in the Glarus Alps, Aug. 24-25, 1931; Kreuzberge, June 11-12, 1932; Drei Schwestern, Alps near Austria and Liechtenstein, July 17, 1932; and Silvretta Alps (Switzerland and Austria), Aug. 5-Sept. 14, 1932. Each climbing tour includes photographs or photo postcards of the peaks climbed, mountain lakes, crevasses, glaciers, and hiking huts (Hütten) visited. Many of the photographs are views of the hikers resting, chopping ice, and climbing with ropes tied around their waists. There is one large photograph of one of the group's mountain guides, Hans Kubli of Glarus. In addition to the photos, the album also contains one colored pencil drawing, one watercolor, and three small oil paintings of Alpine scenes (14-15 x 19-23 cm)
