The best photos can be found on Skyscrapercity.

E.g.,

City of Toruń is here: skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1306351&page=12

I dare to disagree. I hardly ever use them.

Warszawa, climactic photos by a Warsaw lover here with appealing commentary to each shot: skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=270745&page=217

Page 217

One can learn how to take photos in the city.

Pawian, do you know of a good site that offers historic photos of rural towns and villages pre WW2 by any chance?

Now I can`t sayn any addresses but I can search for them if you want. Or you have already tried and got your results, so I probably won`t find anything new.

I found a few here and there, but not a large collection of photos pre-dating WW2 (I was hoping for a digital collection of a Polish state archive or something similar). I usually frequent the web sites of historic postcard dealers, but the image quality there is rather low for obvious reasons.

Thanks anyway!

Move a cursor on a photo to see how a place looks now.

In the Internet there are photos in colour of Warsaw just after the war taken by American architect Henry N.Cobb.

It turns out that Cracow has its refotografie site too: dawnotemuwkrakowie.pl. Enjoy, pawian! :)

Thanks for the links; very interesting. Pity that most of my (genealogical) research is within the Poznań -> Tuchola -> Plock triangle.

???? I thought you were after this

Pawian, do you know of a good site that offers historic photos of rural towns and villages pre WW2 by any chance?

Do you consider Poznań a rural town or village????

Yes I am, but Zetigrek put some time and effort into the search for pictures, so naturally I thanked her. Good manners and all that, you know ... ;)

The first source about Poznań was quite interesting, by the way. Lots of photos from the pre-war era I haven't seen before. I'm still searching for images of rural towns and villages in the Poznań -> Tuchola -> Plock triangle though.
