Great collection! Thx a lot.

Btw. The last building is actually a pavilion attached to the Ministry's main building, built in the 1930s as a private residence for the minister himself. Responsible public spending ą la polonaise - good old times

Kierbedzia Bridge

Quote:
The Kierbedzia Bridge was the first steel bridge over the Vistula River in Warsaw. It was designed by Stanisław Kierbedź and built between 1859 and 1864. The bridge had six spans and was 474 m long.

The bridge was once again destroyed on September 13, 1944 by the retreating German army as the Red Army approached on the right bank of the Vistula.

After World War II, a new bridge, called the Śląsko-Dąbrowski Bridge, was built on the surviving pillars of the bridge and coincided with the demolition of the Pancer Viaduct (Wiadukt Pancera) as part of the construction of the new Route WZ.

In September 2011, at the request of the Department of Bridges (part of the Research Institute of Roads and Bridges), a 6-foot piece of truss from the Kierbedzia bridge was recovered from the Vistula to be presented for public viewing.

Quote:
The PZL.37 Łoś (English: elk) was a Polish twin-engine medium bomber, used in the defense of Poland against the Nazi German Invasion in 1939. It is sometimes[1] known as "PZL P-37" or "PZL P.37", but the letter "P" was generally reserved for fighters of Zygmunt Pulawski's design (such as the PZL P.11). The correct designation should be PZL.37.
Quote:
Before the war, the PZL.37B Łoś was one of the world's most modern bombers. It was able to carry a heavier bombload than similar aircraft, for example the Vickers Wellington, though the size of the bombs was limited. Smaller than most contemporary medium bombers, it was relatively fast and easy to handle. Thanks to a landing gear with double wheels it could operate from rough fields or meadows. Typically for the late 1930s, its defensive armament consisted of only 3 machine guns, which proved too weak against enemy fighters.
At the start of the war, Poland had 86 of them. 27 were withdrawn to Romania at the beginning of the war. In 1940 they were seized by the Romanians and 23 of them were used in the Romanian air force. The Germans captured 2 and the Sovjets 3, testing them.

Before the war Greece and Bulgaria had ordered 12, but they were not delivered. Belgium had bought a license, but could not build them because of the war. Yugoslavia ordered 20 and Turkey 10, also not delivered. Spain ordered them too.

None have survived. One or two have been reconstructed.

Reconstructed one:
