The Hemingways In Schruns







When the cold, damp, grey air of Winter hit Paris, the Hemingways would head to Switzerland or Austria for the dry cold air, the skiing, and a roaring fire in the lodge.
These photos are from Schruns, Austria, taken in 1925. Ernest, Hadley, and Bumby.

Vim and Vigor. Bumby was the only son I didn't get to meet.

Hey Paul!
Love that picture, what a fun moment. Not sure if I'd attempt skiing with a baby, though!
Hope your keeping warm!

Amazing! Papa was going to get some pounds with the years; like almost everybody... ;))
Have a great Inauguration!

Hi Karla and Karrie, thanks for stopping by!

Nikon said...

Hi Gil, are you still in India?

KayEllen said...

Great picture and history Paul!

I bet skiing was pretty reasonable back then...lift tickets now are 65.00-95.00 dollars a day to ski or snow board!Not including equipment or fashion wear;0)

I wonder what they would think of it?
Take Care,
KayEllen

Hello Kay Ellen, I'm sure that Hem wouldn't like the present setup!

Shionge said...

I don't mind exploring these places with you ;)

Nikon said...

Hello Shionge! Where do we meet?

GMG said...

Hi Paul! TGIF!! ;)
I'm still posting on India (February 2008); actually the last of the Delhi's tombs... ;))
Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Hemingway looks very svelte in this photo! Wish that this happy family scene could have been maintained.

Shionge said...

Paris would be nice, mid-point for you and me ;)

Nikon said...

Hi Kate, yes, I know - he should have stayed with Hadley!

Nikon said...

Shionge! Ahhh, I would meet you anywhere! But Paris would be a practical location :-)
Happy New Year!

It's too cold to ski! They do like happy, don't they? My grandparents had very similar ski equipment, we used to climb the hill behind their farm and ski down. . .our own private Austria!
