The salt path

The railway lines at the origins of tourism

An urban stroll in the «good air» of the Alps

The Chaussy mountain chain

On the footsteps of a neo-classical architect in Aigle

Ollon - St-Triphon

The folds of time

On the razorblade of a landscape

La Pierreuse

The path of the Post

The Grand chemin royal

The 1798 fights at the mountain pass of la Croix

The old canal lock of the Joux Verte

An electrical promenade

On foot or by bike, zigzagging
in the Chablais vineyard

  The path of the Post : Les Avants – Château d’Oex via Jaman

A historical itinerary following the foot messengers who used the Jaman mountain pass. In the 18th and 19th centuries, these men carried the mail between Vevey and Rossinière, all year round and whatever the weather. Who are they, who did they meet, what were their working conditions? Reading through the archives, writers’ tales and tourists notebooks, we have tried to evoke the life of a way of communication and that of the Morier family who worked for the post.

Françoise Ostermann-Henchoz : Decorator, puppeteer, former depute at the Grand Conseil of Vaud. She has worked for 12 years for the museum of the Vieux Pays-d’Enhaut at Château d’Oex, currently as keeper and exhibit commissioner.
