collecting points

Back in Berlin it started snowing. If you look close you can see the snow on the lettering. It is freezing too, good thing I didn’t have to go to work today. Have been hiding at home drinking tea and browsing through the books I got for Christmas: Jojo Moyes, Cecilia Ahern, Michael Bond and the biography of Dorothy Parker. 

Seen at the Parkfest am Gleisdreieck. A friend of mine just handed in his bachelor thesis so we were out and about to celebrate at the Gleisdreieck. School night celebration. Gleisdreieck seems to be the place teenies hang out and try to be cool, cooler, the coolest. We got chatted up by really sweet A-level students who asked us if we already had finished university. Awww... It made me feel so young and good.


Gesehen am xxx im xx. Ein Freund von mir hat seine Bachelorarbeit abgeben und wir haben ordentlich angestoßen und gefeiert. Naja, ordentlich "unter der Woche" Stil gefeiert. Gleisdreieck scheint der Treffpunkt für die ganzen Kiddies zu sein, die versuchen cool, cooler, am coolsten zu sein. Einige haben uns sogar, durch das 80 Cent Bier Pilsator ermuntert, angesprochen und gefragt, ob wir schon mit dem Studium fertig sind. Ach, was waren die süß. Ich  habe mich so jung gefühlt.

This small hardware store at Savignyplatz sells hardware and household effects. Sadly in these times it is pretty unusual to find little stores that sell specific things, specially hardware, usually you go to big building centers and DIY stores. That is also the reason while this lettering is very rare.

Dieser kleine Eisenwaren steht am Savignyplatz und verkauft alles, was man sich so unter Eisenwaren und Hausrat vorstellen kann. Leider verschwindet dieser Einzelhandel durch die großen Baumärkte. Diese Art von spezifischen Schriftzügen verschwindet leider auch.

This lettering and more over the name is very difficult to find in Germany.

Auch dieser Name ist in Deutschland nunmehr schwer zu finden.
