The Adam Mickiewicz monument in winter

Description:

This picture by one of the most famous photographers of Lviv, Henryk Mikoljash, shows the appearance of the monument during the winter of 1914. A professional art photographer, Henryk Mikoljash successfully recreated the atmosphere of a typical, cloudy winter’s day. The technique used in the picture – rubber, was popular until 1914 and was fruitfully used by H. Mikoljash. On the left is stone building No. 8 in a state of deconstruction, soon to be replaced by Lviv’s "scraper", the stone building of Jonah Sprecher which the architect Ferdinand Kassler built after World War I. On the right is a piece of building No. 9. In the background are the Latin Cathedral and City Hall towers.

The monument to the national Polish poet was opened on 30 October 1904. Its construction was carried out from late 1903 under the supervision of Alfred Zachariewicz and Józef Sosnowski. The author of the project, who won an architectural competition, was Antoni Popiel, a famous sculptor. Earlier, there was a figure of the Virgin Mary on its place.
