|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Built between 1911 and 1914 for residence porpuses, designed by architect Manuel Joaquim Norte Júnior, it is one of the few survivors of the golden age of New Avenues (designation for the expansion of the city towards north at the passage of the 20th century), translating an eclecticism almost taken to the extreme, which combines baroque, neo-Romanesque, neo-Arab and Art Nouveau elements.|
On the right of it, the entrance to the Picoas subway station.
It strikes me as quite peculiar. This one is dubbed "the bridal cake". There are a few others in the same lines around central Lisbon.
Nothing new on PP.

Hello Lauro, very sharp focusing on the building, bringing out all its details.
The entrance to the subway reminds me of some in Paris.
The b/w serves your purpose perfectly.
Tfs, regards Jean.
