In the summer of 1886 Stieglitz hiked through Bavaria and Switzerland, possibly with his brothers and sister Selma.
This photograph is bound into a small (5 1/2 × 8 5/8 inches) leather album, inscribed on the flyleaf: A souvenir of “Summer, 1886,” / to the family. / Alfred. The photographs were made in Mittenwald, Germany, in the summer of 1886. The Stieglitz family, including Edward, Hedwig, Alfred, and his brothers and sisters, spent the summer of 1885 in Mittenwald. Stieglitz probably made this album to commemorate his return the following summer.
