Title

Wolborska Street, a view of the street looking in the direction of the Old Market Square

Description

Wolborska Street was among the most important streets in the city's Jewish district. It was on Wolborska that the city's first wooden synagogue was built in the mid-19th c. (sometime in the 1860s). This photograph features a view of the street looking in the direction of the Old Market Square. Wolborska was quite bustling in its time, acting as a thoroughfare for open-air cabs as well as for farm wagons and cargo carts piled high with different goods.
