The 'gaper'


Another image of a 'gaper', or 'someone who yawns', above the entrance of a (former) chemist. By seeing this head people knew where to go if they needed a medicine to cure a cold, etc. I have posted them before on this blog, they are a sign from the past and a tradition I like to see.
Photo taken in the city of Nijmegen.

  1. Cured me . . . of wanting to go to the chemist. :-)

  2. I love this tradition and am delighted to know it is being kept in this day and age.
