Example of a Copenhagen street scene, with a dairy shop on the far right and a wholesale agency next to it. The grey building on the far left belonged to the bicycle company Simonsen & Nielsen. The Danish movie director Jøneth Leth most likely filmed part of his film Stopforbud (about the pianist Bud Powell) here, as per the "Stopforbud" sign. This photograph shows the eclecticness of Copenhagen and the urban planning which interested Smolski.
