The photo depicts a very large group of people (some of them in folk costumes, some in military uniforms) posing outside a big building.

The photo was taken during the ceremony of blessing and opening of the “Village Hall” founded as a memorial of the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Grunwald.

The “Village Hall” stands on the church land. It was declared an ecclesiastical property and adapted as a cemetery chapel (priests did not agree to the restoration of historic dates on the front wall) ; July 1911, Rychnów, voiv. kaliskie ; The photo sent to the contest named “Photography of the Polish village pre-1948” organized in 1983 by the quarterly “Fotografia” (Photography) and the weekly “Nowa Wieś” (New village).
