Last few years lots of Chinese have arrived which I see everywhere in Poland, and they are very good at finding and creating jobs, as in Canada. Also, small numbers of Dutch have already begun buying up farmland. Don't forget, immigrants actually create jobs rather than take jobs and they also create demand.

Given lower birth rates and emigration of last several years POland may encounter fiscal problems and growth slow downs due to shrinking active labour force, especially once this endless world crisis ends. the government has already begun to develop a comprehensive immigration policy. This is another reason why government recently increased retirement age, older people will have to work longer to make up for any shortfall in skilled labour.

I think diversity will be good for Poland, will boost productivity as natives compete with usually much more motivated immigrants for jobs etc and may even help root out some of our cultural pathologies.

You're welcome. And there will be much more.

BTW, I'd encourage everyone, who is interested in taking a look back at this period, to use great facility offered by the Polish National Digital Archive.

If you run a search by the phrase e.g. "stanisławowskie", you'll be able to view much more pics than I posted here (celebration of national holidays, military parades, sport events, etc).

Not sure about fresh water supplies...

But anyways, I believe the biggest challenge for Poland now is the exchange and development of the society as a whole. I think that it'll have to get worse, before it gets better.

Poland needs to invest more in people that's for sure, don;t see need for it to get worse, gradual evolution reform Poland is now embarked on is ok, though it really should go faster...but you know the bureacracy

the pictures come mostly from the archives of "Ilustrowany Kurier Codzienny", the biggest Polish daily in the interwar period, published in Krakow.

most editions of IKC (as well as "Czas") have been made available by Malopolska Biblioteka Cyfrowa. I strongly recommend this feature.

http://mbc.malopolska.pl/dlibra/news?news=full

BTW., IKC was seated in this grand building called the Palace of the Press...

that's how the interior looks today...

Well, I think that economic crisis may often be a driver of changes for better, as political class and state officials tend not to put through unpopular measures, unless they're forced to. It may've not been necessarily a good thing for the country that Poland remained a "green island" of economic growth in 2008-09 (consequences of the lack of reforms back then will be borne today & tomorrow).

Look how it's perceived e.g. in Sweden (an article from today's Rzeczpospolita): "Swedes apply a rule that the deeper an economic crisis is, the easier is to restructure the economy for a more competitive one."

And by speaking about the exchange and development of the Polish society, I meant that the issues, which IMO may be a significant obstacle for Poland's further development, i.e. the level of social mistrust, dishonesty and lack of the willingness for cooperation. That is partially a legacy of the socialism era, but it's been more than 20 years now since it collapsed, so we can't be putting the blame purely on that.

Ok, enough off-topic from my side. I'll post some further pics later on today.

I very strongly agree with this. There are some cultural problems that became rooted in communist era that need healing, and maybe here is where immigration and return of some ex-pats could help, bringing in people without the baggage. Kaczynski has been a very divisive force who has been single-handedly reawakening Poland's demons, economic uncertainty of last few years has also stirred up the latent paranoias and fears of a populace that has already been through too much. Once he is gone, asap, the political scene will improve and trickle down to society. zgoda buduje is so true, sorry can't help being partisan

For me, I would like to see Poles have more compassion for each other, greater feeling of solidarity and moral support, Poles in Poland and outside, supporting each other instead of bashing and trashing, obgadywac i robienie na zlosc itd.

a lot of deep reforms are taking place though, just have to await passage through Sejm, if all goes well.

And rightly so, as "czort-ków" is not far from "czart" (devil).

But from what I've read on Wikipedia, the town's name comes from the first landlord, Jerzy Czortkowski, who in 1522 was granted ownership title by king Zygmunt Stary.
