In Austria the sunday is still the day of rest. So nearly all shops are closed. But the sunday paper needs to be sold anyway. So they hang them on trees, traffic signs and lamp posts. Get a paper and pay your 50 cents. When I worked there it was 8 or 9 shillings I remember. So in a decade the paper hasn't become more expensive. I can imagine a lot of places on earth where one couldn't sell a paper like this. It would be stolen. And the money as well. Not in Austria. Luckily.
