Swiss role: the picturesque Alpine village of Gstaad enjoys postcard views and provides the perfect backdrop for this imaginative illustration. Sharply nostalgic, and a reminder that there is a resonance to the place names of the principal winter resorts and an indefinable romanticism. By the 1950s special Winter Sports editions of fashionable journals appeared, intended for a discerning readership seeking to get away from it all by experiencing the rugged beauty of Europe’s luxury landscape. These novel travel features explained how to ski and ‘make one’s first acquaintance with this strenuous art a success.’
