Post-war Photos of Warsaw in Colors in 1947

During World War II 84% of Warsaw was destroyed. Dramatic snaps in colour show the centre of the city, including Śródmieście, Old Town and meaningful empty space after the Jewish Ghetto. The photos were taken by New York photographer Henry N. Cobb during his stay in Warsaw, Poland in the summer 1947.
