Continuous Transportation: Ferries

Ferry from Altwarp to Nowe Warpno

I believe this is the ferry running from Altwarp, Germany to Nowe Warpno, Poland.
The site had it tagged as "Stare Warpno", which - if Slavic memory serves - should be "Old-Timey Warpno" , or Altwarp as distinct from "Brand-New Warpno", or Nowe Warpno.
One gets the impression there was some national boundary re-location after one of our more memorable world conflagrations, and that movement set up Altwarp looking across the bay to Nowe Warpno. Maybe it was some more ancient war and grudge match.

I was looking for some info on my great-grandfather, Augustus, who came from the area, and I came across the beautiful bay on which both Altwarp and Nowe Warpno are located.
