PRL or Polska Rzeczpospolita Ludowa (Polish People’s Republic) was the official name of Poland between 1952 and 1989. We have an extensive collection of photographs of Poland during this period of time and aim to scan and put many of these online in this section of the Poland Poland website.
To get the ball rolling here are a selection of images from that communist-era of the Ulica Kilińskiego area of the small town of Sulęcin in the province of Lubuskie in the far west of Poland.
Compare these views with a photograph from 1918 of the same part of Zielenzig / Sulęcin.
This part of the Poland Poland is currently undergoing a revamp using the WordPress system rather than the html coding we have used since first starting the website way back in 2004. Please come back soon to see the progress we are making. It will be a blog-like in appearance and feature selected news from Poland; images of Poland, past and present; and bits and pieces on everyday life in Poland.
In the meantime do please check out our main Poland Poland site. There are several thousand pages to explore!
