quite an entrance
I love an "x" design for a stair balustrade. But, sadly, it does not satisfy today's building codes for safety.And as an aside, "Up The Down Staircase" was my 1972 Senior Class Play.
i adored that book. for years, because of it, i thought i would be a teacher. the x is in weimar, as a splendid restaurant/cafe. i think you would like it all very much. good coffee, good cake, good noodles.
