this is an old gold and jewelry shop. every weekday these two-three old gentlemen quietly stand by the shop. the loyalty is mutual. there is not much business. the shop is rather a sanctuary for these few old shoppers/owners.
even though it is in an old district, this shop seems to more antique. it is filled with an air of dignity and tranquility, the gentlemen are always decently dressed, in shirt and trousers for one, and all the details, from the big red characters around the door frame, the mosaic floor, the stools, the security ‘cage’ typical in old jewelry shops and the laundry hanged outside the mezzanine.
