How did the Swiss Alps look like about 100 years ago? Terrestrial images taken by swisstopo

After World War I and up to the beginning of the 1950s, much of the region of the Alps was topographically surveyed using terrestrial photogrammetry. The imagery catalogue of swisstopo comprises around 57'000 scanned analogue terrestrial images from this period.
