to stand in a queue philosophy

to stand in a queue for funeral services

The queue, this was the big philosophy of the Romanian communism. It was an ordinary thing for everybody to stand in a queue for something those days

, something simple usually like toilet paper, bread and eggs, water, sugar, etc. But this queue is uncommon because this shop is a Funeral Services shop. This image was made by Laurentiu Galmeanu in august 1985 and the place is located at Sf. Gheorghe Square in the Bucharest’s center. The building is still there today.

    ….este pacat ca autorul pozei nu a aratat si la ce “se statea ” la coada. In acest magazin, pentru ca nu aveau vinzare (la produse specifice) sa acceptat sa se vinda si alte produse.
    Am o poza ,pe care trebuie s-o gasesc, in care se vede ca in acest magazin,…de exemplu, se vindeau tricouri de marinar…
    Am lucrat intre 1979-1991 , viz-a-vis de acest mgazin , la un depozit de carte.
