Friday Photo – The House Of Blackheads, Riga

I am on my second visit to Latvia’s capital.

This building is named after the African missionary (St Mauritius) who refused German orders to execute locals who refused to convert from paganism to Christianity.

This saw him beheaded himself, hence the building name.
