The meeting

I am from 2007, from Sibiu (Simerom) and I would like to tell you my story.
I spent some time in a dark warehouse, populated by metal giants for which J. Tingelly  would have probably made a passion.
I will never forget the day when someone came to me, gazed and examined me carefully. Shortly after that I saw the light, i could hear the world, I was saved.

I arrived in a beautiful house, I am sitting in a warm corner, I am washed, polished and well-groomed. Many people look at me and admire me.  They brought me a lot of praise, including that one of being a part of the industrial heritage.
However, my motto is “Long live the change!


The chairs were made by various employees, who needed them and they made them more ore less aesthetic. I remember that the chairs were also adjustable screw, which you could adjust height, so-and-so. We used to hide them after the closet, at the table we laid them over and we just stood there... at-at the table. We thought that in a big factory it is mandatory to be a decent cafetaria. It is true the fact that from ’82-’83 a cafeteria has been made where bachelors, (various...), executives and technical staff had their meal at ten a.m. They brought you food from elsewhere, there where so-and-so conditions. There were also people who brought their food from home and those, willy-nilly, had to use that chair. They had to use it, because another solution was not.”
