This is either the post office in Morges or Lausanne, both on Lac Leman up the lake from Geneva. My young wife and I lived in the maid's quarters of a villa in a village near Morges where we froze in winter.

The Swiss phone system is part of the Swiss Postal Service. We should have such good service and clean, modern facilities here in the USA where it is rare to actually find a phone booth that hasn't been trashed or a mail box. Today you can use credit cards to call home from Swiss phone booths.
In 1959 I drove my VW beetle to the Geneva airport to send artwork out to Scholastic Magazines and to Polaroid Corporation, both clients at the time we were in Switzerland. The work got to its destination the next day or the following one. Swissair had just put into service the new French Caravelle jets and they were something to see roaring down the runway.
More Swiss stamps.
Greeting card with illustration of a couple dancing in the cantonal costume of Graubunden. I think I bought this at our village Swiss post office.
