These albums provided invaluable material in the preparation phase of the "Sport and the City: People. Society. Ideology" exhibition, and are worthy of continued historical research. In the Krypyakevych family archive are preserved thirty photo albums from Stepan Hayduchok documenting the sporting life of early twentieth-century Galicia. Included are images of training sessions, competitions, sporting societies, Sokol Club competitions, recreational hikes - complete with written descriptions.
