Baur au Lac, 1917

Following are some pictures that I will be adding to the Villa Turicum website this weekend. They were taken in Edith's suite at the Baur au Lac Hotel in Zurich, 1917. There's a poignancy to these photos for me, as this first photograph is the last portrait to be taken of the McCormick family.

Seated: Muriel and Edith. Standing: Mathilde, Fowler, and Harold Fowler McCormick.

Edith Rockefeller McCormick would arrive at the Baur au Lac in 1913 and remain there until she returned to the United States in 1921.

The Baur au Lac today.
