Alberta Iela sunrise
Alberta iela (Albert Street) first Alberta iela stret signappeared on the Riga scene in 1900, named after the historical founder of Riga, Bishop Albert. Shortly thereafter there began a building program which brought to life some of the grandest houses ever built in the German Art Nouveau, or Jugendstil, style of the day.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, Riga had attained a status as a cultural and mercantile center on par with its rivals in Western Europe. These houses reflected not only Riga's vibrancy and ambition, but the force of its architectural personalities: Mihail Eisenstein (father of famous director Sergei Eisenstein), and others.
Many of the greatest examples of Jugendstil architecture fell in the destruction of Germany's cities in World War II. Latvia's treasures, still intact, now stood behind the Iron Curtain, to be forgotten in the West.
Alberta iela, too, was wiped from Riga's consciousness. In 1941, the Soviets renamed it Frica Gaila iela for a communist activist. The Soviet encyclopediae (Latvijas PSR Maza Enciklopedia and Encyclopedia Riga) claim Fricis was thrown out a fourth floor window of No.13 Alberta iela at the behest of Latvia's bourgeousie government in a staged "apparent suicide." As occupiers are wont to do, the Germans then renamed it Hollanderu iela, from 1942 to 1944. Frica Gaila iela made its comeback with the Soviet reoccupation, and so Alberta iela was lost in obscurity. In 1990, a year before independence, Alberta iela was restored—perhaps as a harbinger—or at least the first step in the hope that it could rekindle its glory days after half a century of neglect.
