My new Flickr group!!!

Maquina express familiar - EL PETISO - Rosario - Industria Argentina

I don't know if you remember me tracking the A.R.V. from Rosario (Argentina) (Post: here Badge: here Picture: here).

I still don't have the slightest clue about the production of these coffee makers. Feel free to help.

Anyway, I have just seen the same machine, but with another badge.

The background is as interesting as the machine itself (not like mine ;.)

And here the fanstastic new badge!!!

ASTOR S.R.L. Bresso (Milano) - The return of the Blue Box

Funny. I always link in my head the Blue Box (more here) with the West Coast of North America since it appeared twice there. It is just something i didn't think about, and that happens automatically.

Seeing the same Blue Box but with a Milanese Reseller coffee machine just boggled my mind, and made me realise that it must have been a new packaging from the Brevetti Robbiati company (with which i always associated the carton Boxes here until now)!

Thank you Frank!!!

One picture changed my photography skills forever.

I don't know how many times i failed.
I even bought a photo light box back then.
It just wouldn't work for me.

Then i looked carefully at this picture.

and saw this:

1) a white surface on which
4) the sun is reflecting
2) a white surface
3) a white surface.

I look around me.
The only equipment i had was the Sun.

So i drove to the nearest building supply store and bought many sheets of Polystyrene.
(for less than 20 euros)

On photo session day, my balcony would look like this:

for this amateur kind of result (way above my expectations):

Frank (who took the first picture of this post) paid a visit many years later.

Thank you for what you taught me!!!

Update - Brevetti Robbiati - Via Cesare Battisti 22a, Novate Milanese

I got a reminder recently by Pootogoo (here) that google.maps did make some updates since 2012.

As i posted this (here), about the creation of Brevetti Robbiati on the 10th of May 1948, the cars of google maps just made it until the roundabout.

It looks like they have now made it to the end of the Cesare Battisti Street, which allows us to look at the backyard of what used to be (until 1958) Mr. Robbiati's factory.

You might say i posted this frothing recommendations already, and you're right. (here)
It only "slightly" differs by the tabbed paragraph at the bottom.
