Title

Zgierska Street

Description

On a sunny afternoon, we see Zgierska Street from the Bałuty Market southward towards St. Mary’s Church. The architecture is a mixture of wooden houses and tenement buildings, typical of Bałuty. The street is paved with cobblestoned and in the foreground we see covered gutters and tram tracks. We witness ordinary activities and traffic. Horse carts, trucks, and cars are traveling in the direction of the Bałuty Market. The pedestrians—poor and rich, young and old, men and women—are going about their business. A few elegantly dressed men stopped by the advertising pillar and are looking in the direction of the photographer.
