Description:

A general view of the Contracts Fair at Podil. Traditionally, fairs of this kind were held in winter; this picture, however, indicates that they could begin in autumn and be continued in spring. It was most probably taken in March or early April. Almost the whole space of the square is occupied by numerous stalls, to some extent protected from bad weather. Partially, however, trade is conducted directly from the carts seen in the foreground. One can see some parts of the carts (wheels with beams) and, in some distance, chairs. In the background, there is the two-floor Contract House, constructed in the Classicist style, with a protruding four-column portico on the shorter side.
