Iraq: "beer garden"

Seeing this image the first time, the atmosphere just reminds me again of a place here in Munich - the beer garden at the "Seahouse" in the English Garden. So for me this image is the "Tigris Garden". It would be interesting to know how they call it...

As a postcard says, these seats/benchs were a place for recreation...

Interesting is that it is always exactly the same type of seat/bench.

Often used for sitting and watching the street life, sometimes the men were sitting in tailer seats vis à vis playing games on it or have a chat or reading a newspaper. Until now I haven´t seen no variations.. or for example chairs etc.. and why is the seating so high, so that sometimes the feets cannot be put on the ground..
