Welcome to Poland

This affable chap from the Tatra mountain region of southern Poland is a probable ancestor of mine. He is wearing the traditional peasant costume of the area - waistcoat, breeches and black hat. He is raising a glass of wódka in one hand and clutching his ciupaga in the other (a decorative Polish axe-shaped climbing stick). I think maybe his name is Stanislaw (my paternal great grandfather's name).

Welcome to Poland! Witamy w Polsce!
