    Beautiful dilapidation

    Right. Up. My. Street!! You knew I would enjoy this, didn’t you, Meg! I want to get inside that first one, and those huge old doors put me in mind of those at the Brukenthal (in Sibiu)….but these are much sadder…

    No four is sad. I hate seeing buildings so neglected like that. But the doors and the rusty wrought-iron window bars are divine! I bet Sue was drooling over these 🙂

    I like number five and six best of all, the ornate wrought iron and the stucco angles are stunning. But also the cellar flap/cover things? are so intriguing. Just wonderful Meg and I see that Sue thins so too. x:-)x

    I like the one with the green-remnanted doors. Lovely colours and textures and very pleasing compostion. These places must have been quite something when they were built. It is interesting that they haven’t been demolished, so perhaps restoration might still be a possibility.


    • I think I read somewhere that Łódź is being systematically restored. Which probably doesn’t mean everything. There was big money new in Łódź in the nineteenth century, and moneyed people need to display (I’m reading Jane Austen!) I seem to remember a similar discussion about Praga.

    I concede beauty in 1, 2 and 3, those magnificent double doors, and maybe your last one, but it has a lot to do with your rendering of them, Meg. If we sent Sue there we’d be in danger of not getting her back. Watch out, Poland! 🙂

    So from the comments do I understand that this area is going to be preserved, upgraded, torn down, replaced or just left alone? Fascinating as it is and very well photographed. Are they all deserted?
