This building during the years 1885-1939 housed Henryk Frist's Salon of Polish Painters, promoting Polish painters such as J. Majteko, Kossakow, and Tondos, amongst others, as well as the struggle for Polish independence in the time of Zaborów by publishing postcards with the slogan "Poland is not yet lost" (i.e., a snippet from the Polish national anthem).

Regarding The Salon of Polish Painters. The marker makes more sense when one understands that Kraków was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the majority of the Salon's existence, i.e. from 1885-1918. Hence the importance of the Salon's focus on Polish painters and Polish independence.
