The historic Blackheads house in pictures

"Should I ever cromble to dust, rebild my walls you must!” these words, written in the walls of the original Blackheads house, served as an inspiration for the people of Riga to reconstruct the building after its destruction during WW2. In 1999 the doors to the literary newly build house were reopened. One can say the Blackheads house is a true example of the love and craftsmanship of rigans.
