Samarkand Apartments

Some time ago I wrote about the "Florida-style" villas, designed by Palmer & Turner, on the eastern stretch of Avenue Joffre.

For some inexplicable reason, they are called Samarkand Apartments.

For a long time, I thought Samarkand Apartments was the name of the small grey apartment house to the east, but that's Richmond Apartments 日耳曼公寓. The reason for this confusion is the change of the numbering.
