    What an odd coincidence. I lived down that street for fifteen years but moved away last summer, less than 50 meters beyond where the street bends. The house in the middle of the picture is owned by a famous old art dealer family, I believe. To its right you can see the entrance to a collection of private gardens, many of them walled. Further to the right, not visible, are more houses. All of this was built in the 1920s and 1930s.

    While you can’t see it in this case, the picture is taken almost standing inside an arc, a short tunnel going through a building that ends the street. You can find other pictures where this is visible.

    Even further to the right, to the right and across a parallel street to the unseen row of houses, is the ugliest building of the city, the School of Architecture, naturally. Beyond that can be found numerous other beautiful and unique buildings in a smallish area, dominated by an enormously tall church built on top of a hill.
