From the outside looking in at
Pâtisserie Demel's window display,
with the reflection of a window
of Michaelerhaus across the street.
Michaelerhaus is where the 18 year old Joseph Haydn
moved in 1750, to live there in an attic room
for more than five years.
The former choir boy and budding musician
had to work as valet back then,
to earn a meager living.
