Photographer's Note

Voiron long formed part of Savoy, but in 1355 was exchanged (with the rest of the region between the Rhône and the Isère, watered by the Guiers Mort) by the count with France for Faucigny and Gex.
Voiron stands at a height of 950 ft., on the Morge (a tributary of the Isère River).
The fine church of St Bruno was built 1864-1873 at the expense of the monks of the Grande Chartreuse. Voiron is the starting-point of the steam tramways to Saint-Laurent-du-Pont, 12 m. (for the Grande Chartreuse), and to Charavines, 105 m. (for the Lac de Paladru).
