Here is our lovely La Catrina getting out her umbrella to go see the Staubbach Falls in Lauterbrunnen in the Kanton of Bern, and feeling very romantic. She is on the Mainstreet and in the background we see the Hotel Steinbock which in many forms, has been around since 1825, to the right the Staubbach Falls. Lauterbrunnen is the valley of 72 waterfalls. This is the highest free-falling waterfall in Switzerland measuring a 297 meter drop (974 feet).

In the summer, a warm breeze blows through the valley, catching up the falling water and swirling it about as a mist. This mist collects dust while in the air and so mixes again with the falling water forming a kind of liquid dust. This is where the name “Staubbach” comes from (Staub = dust), the Dust Creek Falls.

This postcard is from around the 1920’s. Published: August 8, 2023.


All cards mounted on white 250 g/m² paper with trimmed edges. Vintage postcard, overpainted with acrylic paint, H x B cm, no frame. Signed and dated in pencil on back. This can be easily erased in the event you want to use the card.

The cards are packaged in cellophane with an informative text about the history of the image on each card and when it was first published.

Please note that since these are antique postcards, some might contain small tears, pinholes and/or scratches. Fleshy tries her best to lovingly craft each card, but sometimes a tear might be too close to the overall subject to cut it out. The actual colors might differ slightly from your monitor.

Every postcard is a small, unique work of art!

Delivery throughout Europe and overseas is with normal postal mail in cardboard envelopes so nothing should bend. Postage and packaging are calculated at checkout.
