Photographer's Note

Nikiszowiec - famous old district, see plase.

Nikiszowiec (German: Nikischschacht) a part of an administrative district Janów-Nikiszowiec of Katowice city.

Initially it was coal miners' settlement of Giesche mine built on the land of Gieschewald manor (Giszowiec) between 1908–1918 on the mining – metallurgical concern initiative Georg von Giesches Erben.

On 9 May 1924, the liquidation of the manor occurred and Nikiszowiec together with Giszowiec were incorporated into Janów district.

In 1951 the district became a part of a new city – Szopienice, however, this decision was voided in 1960, when both Szopienice and Nikiszowiec were incorporated to Katowice.
