Treasure trove of photos

Tomek Wisniewski's web site bagnowka.com contains the largest gallery of pre-war photos of Poland, images of Jewish cemeteries, and old maps of hundreds of cities and shtetls. In addition, there are photos documenting the old wooden architecture of Poland, extensive holocaust pictures, and even photos of pre-war mosques in Poland.

In all, there are over 40 000 images, each sorted alphabetically by town. It is quite a valuable resource; quite a treasure trove.

Below is a street scene, one of 37 pictures of Przemysl on his site.
