I am trying to identify the historical name of a town now called Alba,
Belarus, in the eastern half Grodno Guberniya during 1930s. I located
a Polish military map >from 1921 which shows its name as "Kol. Alba"
and I was curious what the abbreviation "Kol." indicated. If anyone
can answer this question, please let me know.

If you are interested in its location, it is on the road between
Ruzhany and Kosow Poleski and was the site of the German border point
before the Germans advanced further in 1941. It can be seen on this
