A few pictures from 1960 of Arosa, Graubünden, Switzerland.
The purpose of these posts is to share photographs taken by Doris Shipway in her 50+ years of travel. She visited Switzerland in 1960 with Dessie, a travelling companion, in 1960 and took the train to various places including here in Arosa.
I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
For more of their tour, look at Switzerland tour links – There are 12 other posts.
As Doris features in these posts I assume that her companion Dessie took them.
Photographs of Arosa, Switzerland 1960
The sign is just below the scanner’s ability to define words clearly, but by squinting I believe it points to the Aroser Weisshorn. Maybe the cable car. I have looked on Google maps to see if I could pinpoint exactly where she was snowball chucking, by seeing where they fly the flag now. Perhaps it hangs off the mobile phone tower.
Again I had trouble identifying the restuarant. Probably it has been torn down and replaced. That may be Arosa town in the valley floor.
