The street around Żwirki i Wigury square on the photos by Schaje Weiss
Some time ago we received several new photos from prof. Charles Weiss Jr. These pictures were also taken by his father, Schaje (Charles) Weiss, during his short stay in Brzesko in 1929. Thanks to Marek Sukiennik it was possible to place these photos on the modern map of Brzesko (red line in the photo from google maps).
The buildings on the right in the first photo (including the house where Schaje Weiss was born, presented separately on the photo # 2) are on this line closest to the present Żwirki i Wigury square. The one-story building with large windows visible in the background of the first photo, as well as the two-story building with a balcony, have survived to this day. The houses in photo # 3 were located on the same street, just further away from the church seen in the first photo.
This street can be seen also on the drawing made before the great 1904 fire.:
Back in 1939 it was actually quite a wide street (Altmarkt on the map from 1939; this map also shows the old Jewish cemetery at Głowackiego street).
