Historic Food Images 3: From L'viv
Here's a closer view in a different photo. The strings remind me of the strings of dried mushrooms you still see sold here. Or?
Just a very nice view of a Ukrainian village house. Based on my limited knowledge, directly over the fence is a flower garden, with a larger kitchen garden out back. Today, in some Ukrainian villages houses are hidden behind solid, higher fences--so much harder to take a peek at someone's garden!
It's difficult, anywhere, to find nice photos of people just having ordinary, everyday meals, not holiday ones, not picnics. So although I didn't know whether this was Ukraine or Poland or somewhere else, I just enjoyed this man's informal table with his glass of wine and those familiar soup plates that usually contain borscht. What do you see in this picture?
