Postcard Tour of Zmigrod Nowy

This gallery includes copies of postcards from the town of Zmigrod Nowy. These copies were provided by a kind Krosno bookstore owner, Rafal Barski. The poor quality of these photos would be due to the fact that they are now copies of copies. To find out more abut this shtetl, go to: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Zmigrod/zmigrod.htm

Rafal is an owner of a wonderful little used/new bookstore in Krosno.  He was the one who provided all of the Zmigrod Nowy postcards appearing in this gallery, except for the first one.  Ironically, this photo of him is on a postcard, which was made as a joke. It appears that Rafal and the co-owners of this bookstore enjoy playing jokes on each other. If you visit Krosno, stop by this store and chat with these delightful folks.
