This lot includes the antique ribbon-bound photo album shown in the corresponding image. This album contains pictures of members of the Polish-American Teams attending the 1934 "Poland's Athletic Games" in Warsaw. There are photos of the team assembled on the deck of the ship (one of these pictures is signed by four members of what appears to be the men's track team), competing in the games themselves, and touring sites in what is almost certainly pre-war Poland. The last images in the album correspond to an unidentified female jumper (also shown posing for pictures with others, presumably team members) who bears some resemblance to Stanisława Walasiewiczówna (1911 - 1980, also known as Stella Walsh), the famous Polish athlete who became an Olympic champion by competing among women, even though it was later learned that Walasiewicz had ambiguous genitalia and could not easily be identified as either biologically male or female.
