Laundry and Dish

Laundry and Dish

My best guess is that this is home to a student or two ( University of Coimbra). It is 5 or 6 stories up, just across the way from the Se Velha Cathedral, one building down from the Faculty Dining Club on the Largo do Se Velha.

Well observed, I did think it was an odd place to hang washing unless it was holiday makers, but students sound a reasonable guess.

Looks very studenty to me - but be thankful, at least they do launder their jeans and teeshirts occasionally. Must make the lecturers' lives more bearable...

Well seen. They should cut back on some of their dish channels and invest in a dryer. Smile Nice capture.

The light edgings around the tiles make a fine border. Love this vivid shot of life.

I like the tiles, the detail and the comical side to this. I think Dave's reference to the dish and soaps is the best joke. Perhaps this is a "dish washer" ??
