From The Leeds Mercury (1929): “Spherical houses, which are said to be very practical and healthy, are being built in Germany. Here is a street of them in Dresden. The road will be opened to traffic next month.”
Incidentally, the houses were real – or, at least, one really was built and still exists; see HERE.
