Title

Corner of Sienkiewicz and Przejazd Sreets

Description

At the lefthand edge of this photo, taken at the junction of Sienkiewicz and Tuwim Streets, we can glimpse a section of the enclosure around Church of the Holy Cross. A high wooden-plank fence on the other side of the church shields our view of grounds belonging to the Cyclists' Association. On the fence hangs a sign advertising the RIALTO movie showplace. Structures belonging to the Juliusz Heinzl factory are visible in the distance. A tram belonging to the No. 43 line heading toward Chojny is stopped at a station. Many people are crossing Tuwim Street amidst heavy traffic.
