Google Street View image of Lodz Fabryczna Sept 2011.
(The image above can be panned and zoomed. It was obtained by ‘standing’ at the end of ul. Targowa next to the former power station, ‘EC1’.)
On 21 March, Google activated “Street View for Poland” – or more precisely for certain Polish cities and the main roads linking them.
The images were taken over period of time; many of them in 2011. In Lodz, it is possible to see Lodz Fabryczna station as it was when the trains were still running and before the platforms were bulldozed to the ground.
A hat-tip to the W-wa Jeziorki blog for the story. For those unfamiliar with ‘Street View’ follow the link below for Michael Dembinski’s excellent tutorial as to how to use it.
