A welcoming place (a Parisian bistro)
These hats appeared in this little traditional Parisian bistro that my wife and I were visiting regularly either before venturing out into the Latin Quarter or checking out our photos from a day out in Montmartre.
The hats appeared one day and it took us a little while to figure out that they were provided as an option for customers to wear if they wanted to sit out in the sun. Looking back on that day, I think that the hats are a pretty cool little gesture. To me it is these little things that add up to create a welcoming place.
It is good to know that revitalising Freo doesn't have to solely rely on grand projects but rather that the little things, like making people feel welcome can play their role as well.
