U Havlíčkových sadů 1526/7

Part of the facade of a splendid range of town houses perched on the southern edge of Vinohrady overlooking the grounds of the Grebovka villa and the Havlíček Gardens.

The particular signature of the architect Edvard Paroubek was to embellish his art nouveau facades with the names of New World capitals, such as this example (New York, 1909). In nearby Tolstého street are two similar frontages designed by Paroubek: Chicago and Washington.
