ashtray and sugar shaker

By bliba  
For 90 years in the Cafe Weidinger drunk, smoked, read the newspaper, played chess, cards and billiards.

"In the meantime, the regulars say: Please do not change anything! Leave everything as it is! Because there are so many of the modern restaurants, "
With the exception of a few changes made necessary by regulatory requirements - such as a smoking partition - the facility has remained virtually unchanged in recent decades.

thanks for looking and commenting

A different story to yesterday's. There's sadness, I sense that this is also a refuge for a lonely individual.

Let's hope the only changes made to this wonderful looking establishment are regulatory ones!
An excellent composition and image, Oliver.

Not a sight you see in pubs, bars or restaurants these days - ashtrays! But it's great to see and visit these places that have remained unchanged, give me one any day over a modern establishment. I especially like the symmetry in this 👍

Focusing on the objects rather than the customer actually makes me think more about the customer and his story.

And he also looks like a resident ghost in the corner keeping an eye on things.
