Historical album of the Złoty Stok
A journey through the history of the beautiful city in the mountains
An album by Piotr Romanowski and Elżbieta Szumska is a journey through the city and its surroundings based on a set of unique photographs enriched with a brief historical commentary. The information contained in the album have been collected for many years. The places of research were usually libraries, institutes and archives in Poland, Germany and Czech Republic.
Most of the photographs published in the album are the postcards or photos not having been published anywhere up to now, which, often by a happy coincidence, survived and could be included in this publication.
The photos come from the period of approx. 1888 to approx. 1944 and under each of them a date or a time period during which they were made is provided. Containing over 250 photographs, the album is a kind of journey through the history of the beautiful city in the mountains, which was advertised on the city postmark before 1945 with this very term - "a beautiful city in the mountains".
