Liberty Square in Lodz
Several hundred metres south of the Old Town a new settlement grew in the 1820s. It opened up the straight-line course of Piotrkowski Trakt, its making was the beginning of the industrial development of the city. The square in the middle of the settlement functioned as a market place. It can be still seen in the post-cards from the beginning of the century. The architecture of the oldest part of the frontage had an interesting look, too.
Today the temple, under the invocation of the Holy Trinity, is used by the Roman Catholics. Attention ought to be paid to the monumental building of the Archeological and Ethnograpic Museum, housed in the former municipal offices. It acquired its present-day form in the course of the thorough transformations introduced in the years 1924-26 by the architect W. Lisowski. Originally, there was the oldest Lodz school that stood in this place, founded in 1856) – still another evidence of the former importance of Nowy Rynek.
