I would have liked to tell you that those pictures were mine and came from my private collection, but it's not the case.
During Carnaval time, they were exposed along the galleries, to promote the winter sports in the mountains behind the town and also to sustain the candidature of the region to the next olympic winter games in 2018.
As I like old pictures, I loved this idea..Here are some of the prettiest pictures.
Les dames sont en jupe à la neige!
I like to see those costumes, those hats, the old material for skiying..
The ladies are wearing skirts to walk in the snow!
Some young courageous women dared to wear pants!
A beautyful rank of soldiers called here "alpine hunters", standing proudly..
Une vieille affiche : Peira-Cava est un petit village, à une heure de Nice dans les montagnes, la première station à notre portée.
An old sign: Peira-Cava is a very small village near Nice in the mountains, only an hour away from here, the nearest place to find snow and to ski.("Sports d'hiver" means "winter games")
A meeting near a small mountain's chapel..
Le pique-nique près de la rivière; Nous sommes à la montagne, mais ces messieurs portent tous le costume et la cravate, les dames sont en robe longue; tout le monde porte un chapeau;
La tabourets sont des pliants, mais la vaisselle sur la table n'a pas dû être facile à transporter..
Vieux temps, joli temps, jolies photos...Jolies vies?..
The picnic near the river; we are in the mountain, but every man is wearing a costume and a tie, and every woman has a long dress; evryone is wearing a hat;
The stools are folding, but plates , pots and glasses on the table were probably heavy to carry until there..
Old times, pretty times, pretty pictures...Pretty lifes?..
