Scene from the Graben, Vienna, early 1980s

One of the main streets in the centre of Vienna, close to the Stefansdom cathedral.

In this photograph, you see the PestSaüle, Plague Statue, constructed in the time of Emperor Leopold 1st, after the Great Plague of Vienna.

I had been looking for this photograph since I saw Lignum draco’s post about a visit to Vienna here.

In his post, he had a close-up view of the base of the statue …..mine is, of course a distant view…..

  1. I love the two women, arm in arm.

  2. That has a very nice ‘European’ feel, Sue. I like it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Those two ladies could be from the 1930s! There seem to be several Plague Statues in Europe, but none in the UK as far as I am aware.

  4. I like the retro feel to it, Sue.

  5. I like the women in their typical garb of the 80’s. Your photo is filled of nostalgia, Su.

  6. Nostalgic, citified, and outstanding!

  7. It’s always awesome to see photos from previous times. Even if this is capture only 30 years ago, the way people are dressed are quite different from to day. And of course, for me as a photographer, I can also enjoy the colours and tones of an analoge photo.

  8. Lovely scene, never been to Vienna, wonder if it’s still the same today.

  9. The ‘old dears’ are great! 🙂 🙂 A capsule of life from a different era, Sue.

  10. Great nostalgic shot. Obviously a lot more people when I was there and the statue, as were many others, was covered in a mesh netting. Not sure why, maybe it keeps the pigeons away?

  11. This is beautiful! It’s amazing how similar it still looks to modern day Vienna!
