Prewar Warsaw in Postcards

The Warsaw State Archives have teamed up with Samsung Electronics Polska to produce an unusual display of postcards showing pre-World War II Warsaw. Almost 180 postcards depicting the streets, buildings and parks of prewar Warsaw are being shown on a screen mounted in a shop window at 12 Nowomiejska St. between the Old Town Square and the Barbican. Tourists get to see what the Old Town, Nowy ¦wiat, Krakowskie Przedmie¶cie and Marszałkowska streets as well as Jerozolimskie Avenue looked like before the war and the postwar reconstruction of the city.

The postcard display is part of a round-the-clock electronic exhibition launched by the Warsaw State Archives. The exhibition will feature the digital versions of some of the most interesting items in the Archives’ collection, including photographs, drawings and maps of Warsaw. Prewar photographs of Krakowskie Przedmie¶cie Street and 19th-century portraits of Warsaw residents will soon be on show in the window at 12 Nowomiejska St.
