The PLM Railway purchased land and several existing chalets on Mont Revard in 1923. They combined the buildings to form the Grand Hotel, which opened in 1925. To reach the exclusive mountain retreat, passengers would take the train to Aix-les-Bains and then a cog railway up the mountain to the resort. The terminus station, depicted here and in the following lot, was designed by Pierre Patout, one of the architects who contributed interiors to the great French ocean liner the Normandie. The Hotel was demolished in the mid 1950s. Broders p. 77A, Perry / Broders p. 80.
