"Our Cover Picture: On his vacation trip to Switzerland, H. J. W. Gerritzen, Amsterdam, Holland, crossed Saint Bernard Pass and stopped to take this extremely interesting picture. The rugged Alps loom in the background, part of the monastery is shown, and in the foreground surrounding Mr. Gerritzen and his Harley-Davidson are a group of the famed Saint Bernard dogs. Noted for their great strength and sagacity, Saint Bernard dogs have often brought aid and succor to stranded travelers over these Alpine wastes. Here, too, is historic ground, for Napoleon's great armies crossed this Pass in 1800."
— "Harley-Davidson Enthusiast™" March 1935
