Miss Jemima’s Swiss Journal

The young British woman Jemima Morrell and three other women of their Alpine Club climbed the highest mountains in France and Switzerland in 1863. Jemima wrote a diary that was only rediscovered in 1963. The exhibition tells the story of this remarkable enterprise of four your women. As one of the first package tourists, they discovered Switzerland and the Alps in 1863. The exhibition also shows the beginning of the mountain enthusiasm.
