Description

A photo of an elderly woman and a little girl against the background of the train station, taken by D. Markov. A lady with an umbrella stands behind them. The harmony of the Neo-Gothic façade of the train station, which consisted of one- and two-storied pavilions, is clearly seen. There is a confluence of people in front of the entrance to the central hall; cabs are waiting for passengers. The carriageway is paved with river stones and separated from the sidewalk by wooden limiters. The sidewalk itself seems to have rather a flat surface; this fact can indicate that it was covered with asphalt. This may have been done here, near the train station, for the first time in Kyiv.
