Houses, Yards and Roads


All but the last image are by Scott Seligman in 1993. The last is the home of the grandparents of Stanislaw Grygorowicz; it was taken in 2004. 


This last gallery contains photos obtained from a vendor in Poland by my fourth cousin Jonathan M. Schwartz, also a son of Porozow, that he has generously shared. All are stamped on the reverse side with what appears to be a postmark from Porozow dated 5.11.37. Whether these photos were all taken in Porozow seems doubtful, and whether they are pictures of Jewish residents or their relatives is unclear. They are included here because of their association with the town. Click on any thumbnail below for a larger image. Should you recognize any of the individuals or scenes, please send an e-mail.
