A super looking windmill in Jakobsdorf (Jakubkowice), Silesia, c.1930. Click to enlarge image.

Today’s scan from our picture archive dates back to 1930 and features a windmill and farmworkers in the village of Jakobsdorf, in what was Silesia, Germany. In 1945, Jakobsdorf, was renamed Jakubkowice and became part of Poland. Alas, the windmill itself has long since disappeared.
