A tribute to Doremus’ erstwhile home town Vienna, and an affectionate look at little-seen parts of this famous city that evoke bygone times.
If one ventures away from the “tourist city on display,” into the districts that rarely see tourists, one finds many areas that have not been neither appreciably restored or renovated since before the Second World War. There, one can encounter remnants of the bourgeois opulence of the late 19th and early 20th centuries intermixed with post-war architecture and modern designs. These scenes, preserved in various states of repair, bear witness to a society and lifestyle that has largely vanished. These things still stand, cloaked with their patina of time, not because they have been maintained, but rather due to lack of resources, reluctance to change, neglect or simply because they were robust and useful enough to survive.
