Lizzie Le Blond Album 4
“Winter in the High Alps: Pictures of Snow Sports” 1894-1895
We’ve had researchers travel to Kansas from around the world to see Lizzie’s photograph albums and they have been an unprecedented hit on our website too. The almost universal comment by these scholars and fans is that Album #4 contains the most concise and definitive examples that exist of St. Moritz snow sports and social history.
Besides the detail in her images, Lizzie's photo captions illustrate endearing personal portraits of her close friends, many of whom were amazing athletes in their own right. Over all “sports”---of any sort---dominate as subjects in this album, and a compassionate yet competitive edge resounds within her captions.
