I am reasonably sure the house I am looking for no longer exists,=20
or, at least, that there aren't photos on-line of it. But I have=20
several useful leads to pursue. It appears my timing may be good=20
as there has been a recent resurgence of interest in architecture=20
of the interwar period because of the recent EU Heritage declaration.=20

There has been at least one book on that subject published in the=20
past year or so and I am going to see if I can track down a copy =20
via the Lithuanian embassy here.
