The Locomotive

I am glad to tell you that we have just escaped from the long series of posts about the Food Fair, for a walk toward “San Marco” gate.Locomotive FS 835.084, Livorno
Our first find is an old steam locomotive placed in the front yard of the “Micheli” elementary school, in “Piazza XI Maggio”.Orange tobacconist, LivornoA very orange tobacco shop in “Piazza della Repubblica”.Statue and clothesline, LivornoThis guy is probably looking at the clothesline.Leaning portable toilet, LivornoPortable toilets are compulsory at construction working sites, but this one in “Via Solferino” looks quite unstable and almost Pisan!Old bolts, Livorno“Scali del Vescovado”, old bolts on a side door.

Wonderful images VP, love the Pisan portable toilet comment, you are right seems about to fall. The little Tabacchi store in orange is great!

That portable toilet looks a bit dangerous for user. I would hate to be in it, if it fell over.

How fragile time can be, thank you for capturing it, before it's too late.

A wonderful Friday for you all.

If you go buy some fags in that orange one, you never come out again! Very funny post!

Especially funny seem to me the statue and the toilet. You have a good sense of humour and an eye for related subjects!

FOR SOME REASON, I FIND THE PHOTO OF THE PORTABLE TOILET VERY HUMOROUS.

I love locomotive, I do! I'm in love with all stem locomotives in the world.
As for toilet, well I wouldn't be very fast to use it:)

Your walks always make me smile. That statue seems to be giving the clothes line a very disapproving look! And the Pisan toilet also gave me a laugh!

Is there any reason the school has a train in their front yard?

Really nice shots today.
