Ośrodek Badań Interdyscyplinarnych Nad Wielokulturowá I Wielonarodowá Ľodziá I Regionem

Ośrodek Badań Interdyscyplinarnych Nad Wielokulturowá I Wielonarodowá Ľodziá I Regionem is a digital library of photographs of the Polish working class, dating from 1881 until the 1980s. They were sent in for a contest of a few journals, but afterwards they were kept by the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Lodz. The photos show workers and their families.

In August 2015 the website contained about 9000 photographs, plus their descriptions. Most of the images were described by their owners, according to one or more of the following aspects: date, subject, event, place, where the people in the photo lived, where they came from, place of employment, lives of the people in the photo, buildings in the photo, and photographer. Some archival material is also available.

Both basic and advanced search are possible. Images are shown in small format; permission of the project is needed in order to see them more in detail.
