Polanica-Zdrój, 1950_

The documentation of the Silesian health resort, formerly known as Bad Altheide, was created as part of Chrząszczowa’s larger series devoted to the so called Regained Territories. The spa facilities and features – the Wielka Pieniawa spring building, the pump room, the park – all date from the early 20th century, when the town was part of the German Empire. Photographs of female employees of the local art glassworks presenting handmade products against the background of bench grinders, washbasins and storeroom racks build an image of a Polish handicraft tradition in the area.
