Changing of Street Names #galicia

In response to Steve Jaron's question about the changing of street
names in Galicia:

My grandfather, Josef Sigal lived in the Zamartyno'w section of Lvov.
We were confused when the name of the street changed on the
postcards he wrote >from Waska to Cyganowka. We thought he had
moved apartments. However, I found a map, available on JewishGen,
that showed that Waska had been changed to Cyganowka sometime
in 1941. That may answer the question.
