Photograph by Maynard Owen Williams NO WONDER ITALY. AND GAUL COVETED EACH OTHER'S LANDS! Before Augustus extended his frontier, the ancient boundary followed the ridge which runs down from the Alps toMonaco. Across theborder, Italy looked upon the C6te d'Azur, Gaul upon the Italian Riviera. This view, from below Roquebrune, includes Monaco, with a cruise ship inthe outer harbor, and theTete deChien, thesheer bluff against the distant sky. Laboriously constructed terraces spread fruit and flowers upon the rocky seaward bastions oftheMaritime Alps.
