It was in Przemyśl, a small Galician city situated today in Poland near the Ukrainian border, that I first discovered what a boot scraper was and where my love for these remnants of the past began. I had seen them in Lviv but didn’t give them much thought until I noticed them in Przemyśl as well.
Quite a few boot scrapers can still be found around Lviv, as can be seen in my post here. Przemyśl is a rather small city, but it has its fair share of boot scrapers. A few are similar to ones I’ve seen in Lviv, while others have their own unique designs.
