This image came from the www and the address is pasted on it. It shows you how beautiful the place is. It also shows the way we entered the Lagow.
This map, I scanned from a map I bought, shows all the important points as they relate to this album and it shows both the German and the Polish name.
This map gives you the bigger picture where my past and lost home fits into the geography of the world.
On this day we drove from the former Tirschtiegel or Trzciel to Lagow and seen this lady practicing the oldest profession. In Germany the ladies had big vans with a heart on the door.
Close-up of the last image. Remember, I shot from a moving car!
During the 3 days in Poland, the former Eastern Brandenburg, Germany, we came across many construction sites of a new Autobahn from Berlin to Warsaw.
We came from the east and just drove thru, under that viaduct, a bridge for a rail road.
We came from the east and just drove thru, under that viaduct, a bridge for a rail road. It looks like those viaduct span bases need metal straps.
And another close-up of that image with the very nice house at left.
Looking ahead towards Lagow. See album description below.
Close-up of the house on the right from the previous image.
Again a close-up of the end of the street from two images ago.
Just entered Lagow Town proper from the east and we are looking back.
Close-up of the last image.
The Johanniter Order Fortress lies between two lakes and this bridge goes over the canal connecting the two lakes.
The two lake connecting canal enters or starts at the south lake here.
After crossing the canal, we are looking back at the south lake.
Looking a little further to the right, along the town wall and we see this Café. But remember it is November and it is cold, so it doesn’t look open.
We are approaching the east gate of the town wall.In this part of Europe all vehicles are required to have their lights on DAY and night.
At the east gate of Lagow town, looking right along the town wall.
Just passed thru the Lagow east wall town gate and we are looking back at it.
Walking further into Lagow and we can see the church.
Walking to the first corner in Lagao and we see this, impressive. This was the seat of government for many centuries and the taxes in kind from my early ancestors went here.
Looking left from that corner we see houses at left and the fortress wall at right.
