Ushpol that was

These wonderful photos of Ushpol in the 1920's and 1930's were made available by Ruth Stern.  Ruth's mother Shprinzte brought these photos with her when she emigrated to Israel in 1935.  They give us a amazing perspective on life in Ushpol in the years before World War II. (the descriptions come from Ruth)
