Historic Food Images 4: From L'viv
My last trip to L'viv was also my last chance, this visit, to look for historic photos related to food. The craft market in L'viv, near the opera house, yielded some fascinating images. Above, some proud (and well-dressed) workers at a flour mill. Below, a stylish sip of something.
I can't quite tell what's going on in the image below. A bride? The slat basket over the one man's shoulder is a really familiar, well-used form even today. Just last week I saw many people coming in on the trains to Kyiv with this over their shoulder, filled with berries or cherries and covered with a cloth. Anyone able to tell us what's happening here or where the image might be from?
And just because it's a beautiful image, this color postcard of apples. Enjoy!
