SWISS FAMILY, SWISS FESTIVAL, SWISS CHALET
This family in authentic Swiss dress is typical of the many families that parade each Fall at the time of the famous Swiss Festival in Sugarcreek. The building in the background is just one of a great number that have a Swiss Chalet facade. The Alpine scene painted on it is of the famous Gottard Pass or R.R. tunnel through the Alps connecting Switzerland with France.
