Well, as always, business close over the Christmas new year holiday break. Luckily here in Marrickville fewer close than in other places. Still this morning all the cafe’s except for two were closed. Unfortunately the two that were open were ones I do not normally go to. The steam powered cafe does not have any food and Gloria Jeans is suffering from the fact that I have never particularly liked middle class Australian stuff. I took lots of photos of all the closed for the break signs on this side of Marrickville Railway Station. There were 44 in total. Here is a representative sample. I am not sure why they say thank you when they are making one’s life more difficult by being closed. I think that the best work was sorry.
