Polish Constitution Day

In front of the Cleveland Museum of Art, there was a celebration of the 109th anniversary of the dedication of Cleveland’s Tadeusz Kosciuszko Monument; speeches, dances, and rain shortened. Point was made, that there was no unified, nor independent Polish state at the time the statue was cast and mounted, and the Poles in Cleveland were uniformly workers in Clevelands mills and factories. The statue was there before the museum. Kosciuszko was an hero of the American War for Independence, and was identified with the Polish Constitution of 1791. It was in effect for eighteen months, before the third partition of Poland.
 The sky was giving a colorful message.

After the rain cleared, these lovely young ladies had another event.
