Long Description:
This is a classic building of a classic avenue of Lisbon. It was a glorious quarter once, of the final years of the Empire, becoming slowly dodgy, inhabited by poor immigrants from Africa and Brazil, drug consumption and prostitution skyrocketed and the real estate decayed. These days there is a relative effort to renovate the neighborhood but it's still short for the needs.

About the specific building it wasn't possible to dig out any information. The flatiron forms one of the corners of Avenida Almirante Reis - one of the mains in Lisbon - with Rua dos Anjos. There is a metro exit just in front of it, across the street.
Current use of the building.: Mostly residential, with shops in the ground floor and a hairdresser in the first floor.
