  • Description

    As London's Swiss Fortnight draws to a close, thousands of visitors made last-minute calls to the may exhibitions of Swiss products, throughout the city.

    Here on the steps of Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, Mr. T. Haller of Tele-Swisse says goodbye, before returning home.

    At Park Lane House - hub of activity during Swiss Fortnight - national flags flew in the autumn breeze.

    Swiss Fortnight was officially opened in London, Oct. 5. Londoners have seen cultural and trade exhibitions and colourful, well-planned window displays - all designed to show Britain how the Swiss live and work.

    In London alone, wines and food have been tasted, and fabrics and watches seen. Displays of precision instruments, of books, postage stamps, paintings and sculpture were provided end sports and entertainments arranged in - and outside - the capital.
