    I have an old photo of my grandmother in Switzerland. Behind her are some road signs. I am not quite aware of what the sign indicates, either distance in km or perhaps motorway routes. If anyone can gather anything helpful from the photo, I would greatly appreciate any input. I am trying to get a general idea of which city or town the photo was taken in.

    Hi Katevalk.

    Possibly, near Brienz.

    Check this map:

    Not sure that distances match, but they come close.

    Brienz indeed makes sense, as there are two roads in opposite directions to Interlaken (at least nowadays). Also there still is a road number 6 connecting Meiringen to Thun via Brienz, so it could be roads numbers too.
