Summertime in Rome: since 1936...

For many summers, since 1936, this shack has been here along the Vatican Leonine wall. Every summer they open up and it's the place to get a cold drink while waiting at the Vatican bus stop.
There's an old guy who owns it who explains that his wife's parents started it back in the day. His grandaughter, who speaks English, works there these days and they're all real nice and proud to chat about the black and white photos they have of the same old shack from the good old days.
