My Grandfather's Restaurant


Brissago (Switzerland) circa 1930. My grandfather standing in front of his bar/restaurant. Very interesting the fact that all the signs are written in french and german instead of italian, the official language of our state. The reason was because of the tourists that crowded the region...before the war.
The image was used as a postcard my grandparents were supposed to send and, who knows why, never did! Funny is their signature... "Blanche et Charly"...they made it french...instead of their original names "Bianca e Carlo".
