The sketch deals with the Warsaw district of Praga, the author's birthplace. In a presentation of less known historical facts from the turn of the nineteenth century he tries to evoke the daily ambiance of a noisy and busy part of town, always in a hurry. In doing so, he cites numerous descriptions by assorted publicists, poets and writers - the chroniclers of Warsaw and especially Praga.
