Does Golub feature in there??
It is on the opposite bank of the river.  My grandfather contributed to the building of the bridge ....  

The town today is Golub-Dobrzyn.  Golub changed from German to Polish in 1918.

The two Dobrzyns are often confused for each other.   One is Dobrzyn nad Wisla on the bank of the Wisla river, the other is Golub Dobrzyn on the banks of the Drweca river.  

Besides Dobrzyn nad Wisla, the article describes life in Aleksandrow Kujawski.
