Photographer's Note

Hotel Bristol was built in 1899/1900 and is in Krakowskie Przedmie¶cie Street in Poland's capital, Warsaw.
Le Royal Meridien Bristol is, quite possibly, the best example of the splendour of Old Warsaw. Built in 1900 by a company whose partners included Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Polish pianist and prime minister. The Bristol had its heyday during the roaring 1920s. After World War II, the hotel was renovated mainly in the socialist realism style, opened in 1947, nationalised in 1948 and later became a hotel exclusively for visitors from abroad. It was thoroughly refurbished in its original style in the 1990s and re-opened by Baroness Thatcher in April 1993, as Le Royal Meridien Bristol.
