During interwar period, the subject of communication and transport, as well as its infrastructure, together with housing and general economic development of the country, was the main priority field of activity of engineers and technicians. Those were the issues of interest for the whole country that was being rebuilt after the war and partition period, but were of utmost importance for the Lubelskie region – one of the least developed regions of the former Kingdom of Poland. “Technik Lubelski” monthly, published for three years in Lublin, an organ of the Association of Technicians of the Lublin Province is for today’s reader an invaluable source of knowledge about social attitudes, professional activity, initiatives, projects, technical analyses and discus-sions of contemporary engineers connected with the Lubelskie region. The article contains a review of articles and texts covering the above subject matter. In the introduction we present a short description of this magazine and its history. Next, we list and discuss those texts which presented and comparatively analysed different transport systems. The following comes the subject of regional communication investments, and then the problems of transport and communication typical for the cities of the region. Because of increased pace of development of new technologies in road surface construction, this scope of work of the authors is highlighted and extensively elaborated. We also stress the connection of activities and prospecting for infrastructural solutions with the beginnings of development of automotive industry and motor transport.
