Picture Gallery of Mike Marvins' Trip to Szczuczyn, 2001

Comparing Current Photos to Old Ones

Town Square: Goes from Market Square (on right) north toward Grajewo.
Kaplan Photography Studio and Synagogue were further out this street.
City government buildings are on top right of Square. Square used to be paved.
This is the same shot as the 1920's Market Square photo with all the people and wagons in the Square.

Kaplan Studio and home (1995):
Now divided into 3 apartments

Kilinskiego Street: Taken in front of Kaplan home looking north. Building on left is probably the Okuniewski brewery and home. The Russians invaded Szczuczyn in 1920 down this street.
