Postcard from Camille to Maurice Filliez, Bruson Bagnes from the Montreux Palace Hotel. No date, but probably between 1915 and 1920 Y
Postcard to Maurice Filliez (great grandfather of Philippe May) from Camille (not sure of last name) from a hotel in London (we think Maurice worked there a few years based on other papers) Dated 16 August 1915. Great old connection between England and the Val de Bagnes!
I actually thought this postcard was from 1918, but then noticed the 13. So the date is actually 19 August 1913.
This is a fairly large photo I found. (About 8×10 inches) Philippe says the date on the back is 19, so I’m assuming 1919 which seems correct by the clothing and another postcard from 1918 I found along with it which I’ll send momentarily

Nick Lyster provided these two photos of his chalet in the 1960s. He acquired the chalet in the early 2000s. It is on Chemin des Fees in the Hameau area of Verbier – note the absence of any other chalets at that time.
