Title

A rear courtyard on Zgierska Street, a corner of the Old Market Square

Description

One of the houses located on the Old Market Square as viewed from its rear courtyard. While many residences in the Old Town seemed quite presentable from the front, sadly, some backyards were the very image of poverty and desolation.
