Pistoia : a low speed city, an  exibition of old greetings cards without cars…

Everything now is high speed , everybody is running but how  was looking a  city without cars?

By the biggest library  in Tuscany – that is in Pistoia – wwww.sangiorgio.comune.pistoia.it – until the end of January you could see an old collection of postcards from Pistoia & its district with empty streets , just people walking ….cam’t imagine now such a paradisiac scenery !

Of course what I loved most  is the old wood carriage ( made in Pistoia by Enrico Trinci & son founded in 1837 ) in use until early 1920’s  , with its broccato cardinal red  velvet just parked at the entrance of the exibition to remind when our grandparents were  travelling very very slow but with great class.

Enjoy my photos & if you are in Tuscany now, don’t miss it.

  1. I do enjoy looking at old photos of simpler times. So much of our world today is dynamic and without a sense of permanence. It’s nice to view a time when this wasn’t the case. When taking a stroll was a relaxing way to spend time with someone special — and smartphones weren’t even a fantasy.

    1. Very true, another world it was at those times…people couldn’t imagine we can get in touch as nowadays without meeting or seeing each other as we are doing now with internet…but we have curious minds & first we discover new Countries then new peoole staying sitting on our livingroom!👏👏👍👍👍
