My favorite is the set of rusty chairs/table.

Each of the 5 photos gives me a very different view of Livorno. Variety is good!

Randy said...

I agree with Farmchick. I love that patio set.

Jack said...

I love them all, VP, with maybe a little extra love for the streetlight and the rusting chairs.

you always discover some very interesting things on your walks around town!

Well, it was a nice idea anyway, the olive tree. Let's hope it was not chopped down in a different kind of symbolic act.

Excellent post. Long way from Florida. I just love that art déco swing and the chairs. So what happened to the tree?

Gunn said...

The table and chairs was what I stopped at first.
Old and still pretty, but perhaps not comfortable?
You are so good at finding amusing and interesting stuff!:)

The street light and the old chairs are my favourites in this nostalgic series.

Interesting sights. I wonder what happened to the tree. Should have been nice and big by now.

Francisca said...

Nice walk. Dina has a good point. And I don't think I'd wear white to go to that bar.

I have never seen a carousel for kids like that! Hmmm. Too bad you couldn't find the olive tree!

Kaori said...

Wow, a swing carousel! The kids must have great fun with that :-D

What a strange carousel. Very cool though.
