MY CURRENT ‘WORDSTALL’ FAVOURITE – “small kiosk with Turkish sandwiches

Although I am also very fond of the old octagonal cast iron kiosks, of which a few remain in Istanbul, with their elegant tin sloping roofs, ornate ironwork and heavy shutters, I like the mobility of this example more, how it is able to be packed up and moved on in moments, and always providing some shade against the dangers of the burning overhead sun, and at the same time the food is always fresh: ’… critical, radical, topical… and continental, including wisecracks and shock treatment’.

The “small kiosk with turkish sandwiches” is one of the several 2. Turkish Kiosk examples. From the1. Bauhaus Bayer examples I like the Cigaretten Kiosk best with the brilliance of its large smoking chimney. In 3. Garbatella, I recommend a stroll exploring the elegant streets, buildings, and open spaces in the Google image library of this revolutionary-garden-city-suburb of Roma, before encountering the wall “You are now entering free Garbatella
