From the our in Cismigiu historic area of Bucharest

Bellow are two iPhone photos, which I took during the architectural history tour in Cismigiu area of of Bucharest. The architecture viewed and examined together with the participants was very diverse, from late c19th Little Paris style to species of Neo-Romanian, Art Deco and wonderful modernism. The iPhone images are telling samples of small period details, which are in a way the salt and pepper of such tours. The first photograph presents a very well preserved Little Paris style doorhandle assembly, dating from the La Belle Époque period, while the second photo shows the name plate of a 1930s window blinds manufacturer, whose products, imported from Munich, still cover the windows of an Art Deco apartment block in the Cismigiu area.
