Guard Stones: Warsaw

Warsaw’s remaining guard stones differ quite a bit from those that can be found in Lviv and Galicia. I am especially fond of the ones that look like gnomes. For well over a century, these little old men have remained on duty, protecting the walls behind them from damage by carriages.  Though I can’t image they see a lot of action any more as I’m sure it’s been decades since the last time a carriage passed through the gates they flank.

Some of the others guard stones in Warsaw are similar to ones I came across in Lublin, another city that was in the Kingdom of Poland.
