...of our temporary 'home' (yesterday's post) on Grazer Straße,
this is in downtown Bad Ischl, Austria.
Several bridges cross the river from where we stayed to the village.
To see a view of one of them, click here.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Lai Chan See from Singapore, Singapore

Hardly a soul in sight. Do they have the practice of afternoon naps in Austria?

29 Jul 2013 6:36am

@Lai Chan See: No specifically as fas as I know, but it was hot ... more people on the shady side of the street.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I can "feel" the age of this one, right down to the red Pug 205 on the left :-)

29 Jul 2013 8:47am

@Curly: Aha ... thanks for the ID on that red car, Curly ... I shouldn't be surprised. ;D

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Great composition of the street . I have photos from Austria in the sixties !!

29 Jul 2013 8:49am

@Mhelene: You must have been a mere child back then. ;D

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Excellent streetscape captured here with a beautifully-ornate building and its balconies that overlook the action below!!

29 Jul 2013 1:52pm

@Steven: Thanks, Steven ... I liked the buildings, but also the mountain so close in the background (across the river).

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Looks like an interesting street to stroll along and shop or snack a bit.

29 Jul 2013 2:17pm

@Viewfinder: Yes, Glenn ... it was/is a delightful village. The Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria chose the town for his summer residence and his mother gave him the Kaiservilla as a wedding gift.

Don from Spokane, United States

A fine street scene of this interesting town. I liked seeing the bridge with your link.

29 Jul 2013 3:13pm

@Don: Thanks for checking out the link, Don ... it really is so pretty on both sides of the river.

tyan from Singapore, Singapore

What a romantic place!Love the balconies...Austria is one of my dream places to visit!♥

@tyan: Keep Austria on your 'bucket list' ... you would not be disappointed.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

The town looks slow paced and relaxing.

29 Jul 2013 5:20pm

@Ruthiebear: I agree ... the pace of the Austrians seems 'softer' than some other European countries.

Loner from Wörgl, Austria

Hello, dear Judy! You should come back to Austria! Other cities are well worth seeing!

29 Jul 2013 5:21pm

@Loner: How I would love to, Sonja.
We were fortunate to see a number of other places in Austria, from Innsbruck to Salzburg, Melk, Vienna, Graz, Millstatt and the many villages in the Salzkammergut also. ;D

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

Wonderful street scene. I love the archtecture! Beautiful!

29 Jul 2013 7:04pm

@Elaine Hancock: Thank you so much, Elaine; I'm happy you liked it.

franz from Baden, Austria

i haven't been to bad ischl in some years now, but it wouldn't surprise me if this street was a pedestrian zone now ...

29 Jul 2013 7:16pm

@franz: Is the creation of "pedestrian zone(s)" the aim of your countrymen?

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I spent some time in Austria, but not here. Lovely.

29 Jul 2013 8:06pm

@B. Thomas: Glad you got there too ... I could spend lots more time in both Austria & Switzerland if given half a chance. ;D

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

One can feel the "old time touch" in this street...I do not wonder as I know it is a location famous for locals and tourists as well!

30 Jul 2013 1:58am

@Japanalia: So glad you have a feel for the Austrian country. ;D

Abena from Illinois, United States

It looks like a pretty cute scene to me and I find it cool how good the quality is!

30 Jul 2013 2:39am

@Abena: The beauty of scanning photos is that you can then do some processing. ;D

John Jungklaus from Chase Mills, NY, United States

Beautiful scene !!

Beautiful place and a lovely street:-)

franz from Baden, Austria

it seems to be, to a degree, and it makes visiting and walking around much easier and more comfortable ... ;-)

30 Jul 2013 7:00pm

@franz: I like the idea very much. It's sadly not something I've seen over here. ;(

Sharon Pleasants from Monroe, Louisiana, United States

I love the sidewalk, and the beautiful scenery in the background!
