I would sure like ot have some of htese pictures.
You're welcome to all of them, i've got permission from sites or private owners to show or distribute them as long as its non commercial.
some of those buildings derivved from the Byzantine architecture
Some of them were influenced by Russian architectonic styles of the XIX century thats where the similarity comes from.
I'm especially interested in the greater Poznan area.
Greater Poznań aka Wielkopolska, the city of Poznań and a few towns around it (more tomorrow).
Ostrówek, a town/subburb of Poznań.
Chwaliszewo another Poznań subburb town.

And my personal favourite, you can feel there's something unique about it and i've actually contacted the fellow who claims to be the owner of the picture to get its history.
4 Brothers, from left to right, an artist, a post worker, a soldier and a student, picture taken on the street of a Polish city in 1937.
All of them would fight in 1939 in the defence of Poland, the youngest one (far right) will be awarded a medal for his bravery at the Battle of Bzura (one of the largest battles of WW2 fought in the Polish campaign).
One vanished without a trace in the war years, the other will be murdered by Germans, only the eldest and the youngest (far right and far left) will be alive when the war ends.
Thats it for tonight, more tomorrow.
