Rosel Manneberg's former shop 90 years later. during our third trip to Rybnik in 2014.
From left to right: Eli Manneberg, Susan Manning, Michael Manneberg. Behind them is the sewing-supplies shop, next to the arched entranceway. At this time the Rybnik municipality was re-paving the street, and the tracks that used to be used by the merchants' wagons to enter the building and reach the back yard, "disappeared".
