Chamonix Art:

Here are five original prints from The Guide, an illustrated weekly magazine recording British life and world events in Victorian times.  Framed, they make interesting tabloid pages of a charming and uncomplicated time.

They look sensational in a matt frame.

The Advance Guard: Amid the Alpine Snows


In this study, we see the leader of a skiing party at lovely Chamonix under the lordly Mont Blanc, towards which, in common with other resorts,tourists have been and are flocking for the winter sports.

Although she looks quite workmanlike and apparently to the manner born, she stands alone amidst the waste of snow, it will be noticed she remains faithful to the skirt which so many have now forsaken for breeches.

Is the big ship doomed?

The great controversy that is raging round the future of the battleship is here discussed by Surgeon Oscar Parkes R.N., late of the Admiralty who also illustrates his view on this and other pages.
