    The First Polish Photography School That Was Establishsed in America

    Our popular Polish artist, better known to us as the "King of all Polish photographers". Mr. John W. Idzikowski, opened a photography school at 433 Milwaukee Avenue, here in Chicago.

    Mr. Idzikowski's aim is that the Poles, who care for a career in this branch of art, can assure themselves of being well-tutored here for their future, when they seek better positions in the art of photography.

    At present there are three Polish photographers, while in other nationalities we find hundreds, as for instance we have 445 German photographers, 305 Italians, 210 French, and 150 Irish.

    We wish Mr. Idzikowski the best of luck and success and support his aspiration--working for the benefit of the Poles, that being his aim.
