When the earlier attempt at assasination of Franz Ferdinand had failed, Gavrilo Princip ducked into Schiller's Delicatessen for a quick bite to eat. Quite by accident, when he left the shop, the Archduke's 1911 Graf and Stift touring car was backing up beside him after making a wrong turn. Princip whipped out his pistol and fired two shots. (No cheese sanwich meant no accidental meeting, no assasination and no WWI.)
