Zurich Sights

Looking south out of the loft where we stayed.
Building cranes are frequent.

Interior of the loft.

Cafe Odeon in downtown Zurich just celebrated 100 years of business.  Zurich never got rid of the streetcars that many cities had early in the 1900's; they are an important part of the public transit system today.  Overhead wires visible in the photo to left.  
 Switzerland has a history of great poster art and graphic design.  Below is a 1920 poster from the Cafe Odeon.
