Photographer's Note

On the most recent visit to my hometown I was very glad to see that some aspects of the past were recently neatly emphasized. Not much is left from the old defensive wall which once surrounded Tarnow. If you look at the map of the old town, its round design becomes quite apparent. But because not much is left from the past I remember being surprised as a child to discover that the name of the popular pedestrian street, ulica Walowa (Wall Street), originated from the actual defensive wall which once surrounded the town. This lovely defensive tower which you see in this photo was in my childhood surrounded with plenty of other buildings and was practically hard to notice. Today it is nicely emphasized and well lit at night as well. I heard there is one more recently renovated spot like this, which I however didn't have time to explore this time. This wide tower is called in Polish "baszta" which is subtly different from English "tower" being wider and with clear defensive character. There is also in English a word bastion which I suppose has similar origin but refers to a larger structure. I think this will be the last presentation from my recent walk through Tarnow for now, because I was lucky to visit some other places which I also wanted to share.
