  2. Nice comparition! If You allow me to add a detail, I'd like to specify that in the period of the most ancient postcard Poland was a part of the Russian Empire (1815-1917) and the official name of this town was Жешув. The pronunciation was the same of nowadays: approx. "Zhezhoof", if it would be written in English.
    I visited that part of Poland by train and stayed there 20 days in the summer of 1988. Probably many things, from that period up to now, changed a lot. But I still dream about the strawberries of that area of Poland. They were (and are) the most tasteful ones I did ever eat!
