Funny to see you have all kinds of European influences. After the Dutch also an Austrian connection. It is painted with much effort to get it all right.

Do you know a house for those with a German connection? ;)
I will have to show this around. I know some people who will find this funny.

What a cool mural. These social groups for folks from "the old country" used to be so prevalent. I'm surprised and pleased to see some still operate. And thank you for participating in this week's Monday Mural.

@Halcyon - the Germans have done an amazing job of assimilating in Toronto and it is hard to find any clubs, or even restaurants.
I have always been intrigued by this place - but not enough to try their Friday night dinners.

If it's anything like the Dutch club was In Los Angeles, I would worry about it. They were so old fashioned and unassimilated.

VioletSky said...

@Nora - that is pretty much what I would expect!!

hahahha, funny. i think such "clubs" from one nation in another are quite common. i try to avoid the dutch club here in boston by all means... :)

It is an interesting conundrum. zyou leave a country because you figure you will do better in another country, yet you cannot leave the social aspects of your past behind. I guess it is a mighty tug on the heart.
