Description

TRANSCRIPTION

Lago di Como. The beautiful Lake of Como is a veritable Paradise framed as it is with luxuriant gardens, vineyards and forests in every shade of green. The lake is 30 miles long while the mountains rise to a height of 7,000 feet. The inhabitants of the villages on the banks of the lake are occupied in the production and manufacture of silk.
