Refreshment Kiosk, the Lobau, Vienna Photographed 1932

Not on display

The Lobau, an area of water and forest to the east of Vienna, was promoted by the Social Democrats as a place of healthy recreation for the city’s working class. In 1932, Tudor-Hart contributed to a photo essay on the Lobau in the illustrated magazine ‘Der Kuckuck’. Titled ‘Wildbaden in der Lobau’ [Free Bathing in the Lobau], the essay emphasised that an area that was once a playground of the imperial monarchy was now open to the people of Vienna. This photograph was captioned ‘Kurhotel Lobau’ [Spa Hotel Lobau], an ironic reference to the facilities previously enjoyed only by Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria, Hungary and Bohemia.
