Built in 1907, a tenement was a first house of Jan Szczepanik's father-in-law, where later Szczepanik lived with his wife, Wanda Dzikowska.
The attic of the tenement is decorated with a stone sculpture picturing Wanda. Mr and Mrs Szczepanik lived here for many years, and because Jan Szczepanik was a keen inventor, it was here where many inventions of “Polish Edison” were born, including the “fading” method, which allowed to source coloured photos instead of black-and-white ones. Today, the tenement does not resemble its original look, however, it still pleases the eye with its secession-time decorations, small towers and colonnade of porches.
