Vintage Cars & Berets

A fellow wearing a Basque beret and a raincoat posing with a Pontiac on an Alpine road. The location is Fuscher Törl at the top of Grossglockner High Alpine Road, as the words "Fuscher Törl, September 1952" – handwritten on reverse – explain. Is he really the owner of the Swiss-registered convertible, or just a passer-by posing with a prestigious car for fun?

A young lady posing with a BMW in an Alpine landscape. The following words in German are handwritten on reverse: "1938 – Zur Besichtigung nach Schellenbergalm bei Berchtesgaden" (1938 – visiting Schellenbergalm near Berchtesgaden). The car is registered in the city of Munich

A fellow with a Basque beret and a little white dog posing with a Fiat. Note that the car's radiator mascot has the form of a dog's head. The Art déco-style radiator grille with its radial bars also seems to be an aftermarket addition to the car. Could these be French licence plates from the Territoire de Belfort region?
