Façades of The Hague #79

Façade of a narrow building with shop front and apartments, Wagenstraat, built around 1900 in the then prevailing and somewhat pompous mishmash of neo-styles, which seems to reflect the self-satisfaction of a conservative middle class.

Later on as the space for a shop became too small for modern times, it was connected to the ground floor of the neighbouring building, also bringing changes to the shop front, which was redesigned some years ago to its present quasi-elegant and rather cheapish state.
