Upon The Roof

Travel to Switzerland after time in war torn Germany 1946 must have been special.  A collection of post cards kept by my Dad have been shown in many of the last posts.  This post card is "Roof Garden - Restaurant".  Up on the roof I thought.  It is taken at "La Residence - Geneve", and one can see the steeples of a large church in the background. [upper left]  It would seem a good place to eat and gaze about the world of Geneva in a peaceful setting.  I suspect that there were not a lot of roofs still standing on the other side of the border.

The next picture shows my Dad standing on another roof.  It might be viewed as a "roof" of the world.

High in the Alps... mountain peaks rising in the distance...a snow ball in the hands instead of bullets...who would have guessed snow balls instead of bullets...upon this roof.
