Album Tadeusz Rolke "Warsaw photographs" is a multi-layered story about the capital of the 1950s and 1960s - from the images of the city ruined in the socialist realist world, through reports on the city life, fascination with fashion and the lambretta scooters to the record of artistic and social life, portraits of people of culture and art.
