The author presents the movement for further rights of Sunday rest, which resulted in the new law in 1895.

He establishes that the border crossings, shopping abroad and travels characterised the way of life of the Slovenes in the post-war decades in a very important way. They gave the Slovenes a better sense for quality of products and influenced the Slovene trade and production in the way, that it at least tried to approach the standards of the West. The shopping also put some pressure on the politics, which had to take into account the demands of the consumers and try to adapt to them.
