Gino’s is an iconic and popular cafe right in the middle of the Fremantle Cafe strip.
And this is the door frame at Gino’s front entrance.
I could have showed you pictures of delicious coffees and their selection of handmade cakes. Or the very cool walls adorned by local artists and photographers.
But this old door frame just evoked the sheer sense of age, history, and the bountiful number of cappucinos, expressos, hot chocolates and gossip that has passed through this door over the years.
I don’t know exactly what each of these layers of paint tell us about all the human activity that has happened here… but I just love it.
I hope they never redecorate!
