Not only the voyage and hotel cost a lot of money; you also had to have the right clothes. Even today, Nice boasts of being the place for the rich and beautiful, so attracting a great number of tourists.

Nice in winter – in winter? Indeed: around 1900 people sought more a mild climate than the extremes. They left the cold winters in Berlin or Paris – if they could afford it – to travel to moderate climatic zones, the south of France, for example, or Italy. On the other hand, in summer they fled the dusty heat of the cities for Brittany or the mountains in Austria or Switzerland.

Here, however, the landscape sets the scene more for the appearance of the elegantly dressed lady who somewhat seriously observes the lively boardwalk below. This serves to create an image: the name Nice is associated with a landscape, but especially with beauty and elegance, and thus with wealth – because you had to be able to afford it. Not only the voyage and hotel cost a lot of money; you also had to have the right clothes. Even today, Nice boasts of being the place for the rich and beautiful, so attracting a great number of tourists.
