Ukraine -- Old Picture of Galich Karaite neighborhood and Kenessa

The other day I posted a slide show of the old Karaite cemetery in Galich (Halych) Ukraine... Here is a link to an old postcard (from 1910) showing the Karaite neighborhood and kenessa (house of worship) in Galich (in Polish spelled Halicz) that is posted on Tomek Wisniewski's bagnowka web site. The wooden kenessa, whose highly decorated interior is shown on the post card, no longer exists.
