My own one place study of Brumleby
AKA Københavns Lægeforeningens Boliger

This was a bathhouse.

Behind that on the other side of the street are two copper clad spires on the corners of a side street.

Ornamental towers and spires are very much a feature of older Copenhagen buildings, and because, in general, no houses are over five floors, they can be seen from afar with the church towers above the walls like a medieval town.

turning right towards my doctor, or Copenhagen centre.
note the street furniture,
the town's standard bench with cast iron ends and wooden seat and a new design of litter bin with a hinged lid.

The combination of concrete slabs and cobble stone lines (strictly speaking granite setts) means that when a cable is to be laid or renewed the pavement is merely lifted and afterwards relaid on new sea sand by the paviours or brolægger.

Notice the broad cycle path to his right, he is in fact close to the edge of the pavement.
