the Letošník House, original state (north façade facing the street)
At first glance and in terms of space, the house for Václav Letošník designed by František Kavalír can be considered a very simple one. In 1933, the terrace disappeared and was replaced by two rooms. The entrance and the façade, with its three strips of six-part windows, also underwent major changes. The windows were replaced by three-part windows of the same size.
Václav Letošník a Božena Letošníková
Václav Letošník (1891-1955) was one of the best Czech topographers. He took part in the archival separation with Austria after 1918; he devoted his work to topographical names at the Academy of Sciences and was the head of the Archives of the Ministry of Interior. He worked as the head of the State Central Archive until his death.
