Unidentified historic house with painted facade, Zurich: Overall view of the facade
An example of a 17th century house (unidentified) and shop with stepped gables and a Baroque painted facade. At the time of the lantern slide photograph (ca. 1890-1910) it is surrounded by shops and restaurants with perhaps a factory at the back. This would have been a wealthy merchant house or guildhall when originally built, with mercantile or shop space below and meeting or living quarters above.
