Here are cows in Swiss's high pastures,

To share the pleasure that I had to see them and to photograph,
as those who appear in the more complete series on Cows (in French),
and also, in echo, of long texts (in French) of the 19th century on oxen, cows, calves, their origins and their breeding.

 

These photos were taken to Altdorf and in its neighborhood, who is situated in the Swiss canton of Uri,
an illustrated historic note of which I published, on one of my other sites, of 1830 (in French).
