Photographer's Note

I am happy that John is back with us after a break. So, I can also show something.
On the day of my round birthday, I posted photos of wooden houses in Świder. Here is the most beautiful of all of them. The villa, built to serve as a health resort, is one of the largest wooden buildings in Poland. It stands out with its significant historical and artistic value as a representative example of the Świder style, since 1930s commonly referred to as Świdermajer, after the poet Konstanty Ildefons Gałczyński. This style prevailed among wooden summer houses and health resort buildings erected in the vicinities of Otwock in the years 1880-1939, along the Vistula Railway Line. The style was brought to life by an outstanding draughtsman Michał Elwiro Andriolli, who was inspired by wooden architecture of Mazovia, Swiss architecture popular in Europe at that time and Russian ornaments - the so-called jigsaw style.
The property was neglected for many years but a new owner brought back its former glory.

Two other views in Workshops.
