Façades of The Hague #80

Façade of a house with apartments and a shop on the ground floor, Wagenstraat.

The white plastered probably late 19th century gable with apartment windows is not very interesting.

The shop front however, maybe even modernised not long after, is exceptionally colourful and elegant, with tiles, coloured glass and fine carpentry and it is a small miracle it survived the decades.

It is rather bewildering that it doesn’t have any monumental status (either municipal or state), or are there too many recent restorations?
