Do you have old photos of your Polish family during the Christmas Holiday? Or maybe some old photos taken in Poland during the winter?

Please share them here!

Here is a link to 8 photos, most are winter scenes. It looks like the town is decorated with Christmas greens in Centrum Krupówek. http://historia.gazeta.pl/historia/56,99641,10490628,Przedwojenne_Tatry__Zakopane_i_Podhale_na_zdjeciach.html

This site is a combination of photos & illustrations (maybe Christmas cards), along with Christmas traditions, that can be read in Polish or in other languages using the Google translator at this site.

This is an interesting photo, and it does get much larger when you click it.

I often check eBay for old picture postcards and photographs. When you type in “Zakopane”, for example, you’ll find quite a selection of interesting old postcards, photos, and other items for sale (I don't buy them, just look at them ...) Check out this one, for example (Winter in Zakopane, 1941):
