exactly, the buildings to the right of the column are where the restored old city walls are now seen. Sadly the destruction of the old town unearthed the existence of the fairly intact medieval walls which were built on over the centuries.

On a more positive note, this derelict kamienica in Praga (right bank Warsaw) has just got a new lease on life. More of this would make this district an even more desirable place to live.

The lower portion this facade is original. It survived destruction during the Warsaw Uprising.

Not sure what this is.

This is the original town hall which was located in the centre of the Market Square in the old town. It was demolished in 1817 as it was too small for the growing city

They were, soon after the war. But eventually it was decided that Old Market would be too cramped.

I thought that it would be nice to outline some portion of the old town footprint on the newly restored old town market square. even if just the tower it would be a souvenir and it need not be overpowering, just a barely visible pentimento of sorts.
