3034 - Broken Glass

The area out here on the “other” side of river Danube has belonged to Vienna for many years, but it was semi-rural with fields and lots and lots of glass houses.

Today cheap labour in Turkey and southern Spain, along with cheap transport, have made growing vegetables in Vienna much less profitable. Everybody seems to just wait for the next development project to finally sell off their land.
