This is a picture which has turned up in Australia.I would love to know it,s origins. It is made of some sort of metal, surrounded by a frame which seem to be wooden , but not sure. I have been told it is of the Royal Castle of Warsaw , in the xv111 century, viewed from the Vistula River. Can anyone help please

regards Chrismon

First of all, you could post a bigger photo. There's an inscription - what does it say?

Hello Paulina,
Thank you for your interest. I will see if I can obtain a better picture.

The inscription reads

ZAMEK KRÓLEWSKI W WARSZWIE. on a banner

Well, there you go, so it is "the Royal Castle in Warsaw". What more would you like to know?

It's likely a tourist souvenir from the 20th century based on the painting by Bernardo Bellotto called Canaletto from the 18th century: skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=214856&page=97

Thanks Astoria

I thought it must have been a tourist thing. I will check out the site you mentioned
regards Chrismon

I think that is about all there is to know. Astoria has the same idea as I, that it is probably connected to the tourist trade

.It has no sentimental value to me personally, it would be nice to find a Pole living close by who may appreciate it.
