Mechanical Workshop Lucjan Nowiński i S-ka, 1948

As part of her documentation of postwar Warsaw, Chrząszczowa photographed small workshops and manufactories. The local, often family-owned operations were soon nationalized by the newly installed communist regime. Employees of one such workshop pose for a photo in working clothes in front of a low, column-supported portico. The single-story building, which no longer exists, stood in the courtyard of the tenement house at Reytana Street 5.
