SUNDAY MORNING IN GUGGISBERG, SWITZERLAND.                      

Guggisberg is a mountain hamlet in the Bernese Oberland, connected with that city by the post-road.  It nestles at the
foot of a mountain called the Guggershorn.  It stands 3,500 feet above the sea, and, with its white church and quaint
houses, and still quainter people, makes a most attractive stopping-place.  It is not far from Schwarzenburg, on the
Wurtemburg frontier.  Modern fashions are making their inroads, and store-clothes made in the style prevailing from
California to the Ural Mountains will soon be the rule.  The older people of Guggisberg, however, hold fast to the ancient
way.
Our picture shows a Sunday morning in this little spot.  Te young man is approaching the utterly unpicturesque.  The girl
retains some traces of the olden style; but the old grandmother has the primitive costume intact.  A sort of jacket, tight,
low waist, showing the chemise well above it; and a skirt which barely reaches the knees, straight and narrow, with a
loose affair around which looks like a sash that has fallen from the waist.  The head is covered with a close fitting cap.
