There is no description on the back of this card.

The glacier known as Rhoneglacier has retreated dramatically in current times, and only the top most part of the glacier shown here is still present, and much smaller. The rest of the mountain beneath the glacier is barren and exposed rock.

This card was used and is dated 16 July 1930.
