This black-and-white postcard features a young girl and her cow. The German caption Gute Freundschaft (Jungfrau) translates to "Good Friendship (Maiden)".
I can't tell for sure, but it looks like this photograph might have been taken in front of a painted backdrop. If so, the effect and perspective were done very well.
Interlaken, Switzerland. The note on the back states:
"Have been doing the lakes and mountains. Alpine climbers and campers interesting. Enthusiasts all ages and sex. Snowed four inches last Friday. Ski-racing today and tomorrow. J.C. [illegible last name]."Sounds like a very vigorous outdoors-themed vacation!
