21 Kodachrome Photos From an American’s Trip to Switzerland in the Late 1950s

These 35mm Kodachrome pictures were taken by an American during their trip to Switzerland, in particular Lake Thun (“Thunersee”), and the lakeside towns of Spiez and Gurten. The slide mounts indicate that the slides were processed between 1955 and 1959.

Take a look back at Switzerland in the late 1950s through these 21 gorgeous pictures. For more fascinating vintage photographs, visit Graeme Fernie's brilliant Flickr site.
