I don't recall this specific view before. Newly restored 35mm slide from June 1964. The posters on the ticket booths were tourism photos, some featuring actual cable car systems in Switzerland.

Thanks, Bill.

Not the most attractive arrangement, with those ordinary booths not integrated into the architecture. 
Seems like one of those snapshots we are glad to have, because anyone with an artistic eye would have thrown it away.

He's one of the things that makes this an amateur shot - prominent person in image paying no attention to the main subject.

By the way, I'm curious as to what kind of camera he's got.

I don't see much in the way of integrating those booths into the architecture.   It was basically just a barn through which the gondolas passed and riders entered or exited a gondola.  It was much like something one would find at a large ski resort.   I remember standing in line just as these folks are doing.
