After the photo coverage of Stanisławów & Tarnopol Voivodeships, let us move on and explore other regions of Interwar Poland...

Wilno Voivodeship

_____________________

Pics of the city of Wilno have been already presented before: see the posts #22, #23 & #24.

Now, let me take you on a small historic journey to Troki (now Trakai in Lithuania).

People, you need to STOP the political bitchfights!

I just brigged two trolls derailing this thread. Don't even think about starting it all over, the mod team will delete the posts and punish the users for doing it.

Thanks.


Now keep going with the good documentation work, please!

Many thanks, Erbse. Would it be possible to do a little sweep across those ridiculous tags as well?

I also like this thread and I don't want to see it closed. Therefore, please refrain from denominations that some non-Poles might consider provocative (such as "Litwa Środkowa").

Interesting pics, katsuma. But your above remark about the "great Lithuanian patriot" is misleading to people from other countries, who are not necessarily experts in the complicated Polish-Lithuanian issues.

I hope to see more pics of pre-war Poland in this thread, without political provocations from ANY side.
You're right. Now (after the trolling clean-up) I've amended that post.
