"When I have to put my hat on, kneeling down makes a lot of annoyance."
"The sofa is much too small for me / resting on it will be a pain."
"Washing hands is not a pleasure when you have to bend down so much."
"The chair, the table, the coffee dishes. Everything is too small, believe me."
"You would have to see my cloakroom door, two feet higher to go through."
"I don't like looking in the toilet mirror at all." - Via

    Adolph Friedländer

    In 1872, Adolph Friedländer (1851–1904) founded a printing company in Hamburg, Germany. They specialised in commissions from circus entrepreneurs, showmen, performers and variety artists and has become a sought-after supplier for clients from Europe thanks to a high-performance lithographic press.

    The drafts for the posters were created by draftsmen employed by Friedländer who, based on photographs, portraits or old program slips submitted by the client, converted the respective exhibitions into lively picture scenes and selected a suitable typography. The print shop achieved print runs of up to 3,000 pieces per motif. Because of the high quality of artistic and technical implementation, the company became a leading company in this advertising industry. By the time the Jewish-owned company was forced to close by the National Socialist rulers in 1935, around 9,000 designs had been converted into posters. - Via
