    Hi,

    I'd like to show you some almost historical pictures of Warsaw.
    It's Praga - the oldest part of east-bank Warsaw, the district of
    simple folk, cheap prostitutes and old-fashion criminals of all sorts).

    Pictures were taken in late 60's or early 70's.
    It's all about people. Enjoy :)

    This district has not changed much for the last 70 years.
    That's why Roman Polanski made his movie "The Pianist" just there.

    Greetings,

    You've got some great pictures in there, I went there in June, it hasn't
    changed a bit, it feels a bit dangerous and they are still selling the same
    clothes.

  4. Extraordinary photographs. I particularly liked the grainy photos...they
    were very much in tune with the subjects.

    Your photos remind me of another street photographer, Roman Vishniac, whose
    photographs of pre-World War II Poland were startling.
