But is it friendly architecture (people can lean on it when they might not want to sit because of weather) or hostile architecture (designed to prevent undesirables like homeless people from being comfortable?

Probably.

designed to prevent undesirables like homeless people from being comfortable?

I think more for women/men holding babies or with there prams.strollers etc so they can lean and travel comfortably,as those kind of cushioned things are also in Metro and trams,dont remember if they are in buses also.I have seen lots of people holding babies leaning on them.

Too easy was a joke not a riddle.

Not really - I don't recall seeing such a bench (or maybe I didn't pay attention), so I wouldn't have guessed it.

They are all over in Warszawa bus stops and in trams and Metro.I have been seeing them for decades now.I remember now that initially I also wondered but then I saw people with kids using them.In fact I personally prefer to lean against that than sitting in a tram.

People can put on old fashioned clothes to have their picture taken?

OP pawian
15 Oct 2023 #1663
No, maf, not a museum, but a kind of gallery. As for people, they are doing a different thing. Sth more important. :):):)

Hes always showing photos of meals you expect to see from an impoverished TY channel from Moldova.

I wouldn't ever touch that nasty plate and the smell has to gag a maggot.

What is it

Looks like wilted outer casing of Physalis but I doubt it's that. Looks a bit like baby chicory but too small. Any clues?

I was kind of thinking squash blossoms but I don't think they're a thing in Poland...

squash blossoms

They're not a thing over here either. I had to google as I'd never seen them before but they do look like them! It would never have occurred to me to even cook something like that but there are lots of recipes! Pawian tends to go for obscure food too.......

squash blossoms

I think you might have nailed it....

The only flowers I eat come on patison squash.

OP pawian

I can easily handle mine and yours, ha!!!

meals

Good! It is an ingredient for a meal, indeed.

plate

Wrong! It isn`t a plate but a metal pot in which I coated the stuff in flour.

The only flowers I eat come on patison squash.

Wow!! Where did you dig that one from???? hahaha
Yes, patison squash and zucchini blossoms.

Maf was the closest this time. :):):)

Is it the old gas holder in Wola?
OP pawian

Yes, very good - there was a round metal tank inside for producing gas from coal.

A dangerous task!

There was a lot of trial and error before the open ended barrel system started to be used.
