South Mitrovice buildings 2: this street displays the palimpsests - the different layers of activity that have built up over time - as houses have been built, then damaged or destroyed and renovated, rebuilt or replaced. The palimpsests built into these homes are, helpfully, though some would argue unattractively, visible, as the conservation and restoration of the buildings has not been performed in the original styles.
