During a restoration, an original wall of the old Lehmann Bookshop was discovered. After the original construction, it was covered but it will be restored and featured once again.
The surprise of finding the wall behind a structure that was built over it happened on Thursday. The Center for Research and Conservation of Cultural Heritage publicized about it on its Facebook profile.
The work to show off the facade originally built in 1914 by Gerardo Rovira, with an elegant neoclassical style, has already begun. Old photos were referenced to have a better idea of the original appearance.
Pilasters will be rebuilt. These are flat columns that were attached to the wall. They covered the entire height of the building rather than having some on each level. Their original proportions will be used and bring back the sophistication of the classical building.
