Description:
«The image shows the postwar market in Zernova St. - a flea market, occupying the space from the Opera Theater to the bridge in Peltewna St., today's Chornovola Blvd. The market was open practically around the clock; in this space, in a large concentration of sellers, buyers, and pickpockets, one could buy deficit goods. One hot item was the "bimber" - moonshine produced from God knows what. Lviv residents - both the born-and-bred ones, and the "new arrivals" did whatever they could to survive in postwar Lviv. For an unknown reason, a zeppelin hangs above the market crowd. This spontaneous market existed until around 1960, the start of construction of the Lviv Hotel. Subsequently, it was moved to the Zhovkivska junction in Bohdana Khmelnytskoho St., and then to the town of Riasne. In our days, these spontaneous markets have become a necessary attribute of practically every city district. Only recently, have we managed to 'civilize' them somewhat, and bring the space they occupy to some order." (from the recollections of Volodymyr Rumiantsev)

The Lviv State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater was built in 1897-1900 under a project designed by architect Zygmunt Gorgolewski. The building is erected in historicist style and influenced by the so-called Vienna Neo-Renaissance. The monumental theater building has occupied a key position in the architectural ensemble of the city’s main avenue created in the late 19th – early 20th century.
