The old city of Chisinau - Moldova of the Photo Gallery. A trading place - a market. The big rectangle between the Armenian and Bendery streets already almost serves two centuries simultaneously to two purposes. Here it is possible to buy more cheaply, yes to sell more expensively. A unique place: noisy, dirty, but till now kept the unique colour of the provincial southern city, only just punched to itself a way to capitals. Shouts of dealers and loaders with centuries have not changed at all. It is necessary to close only eyes and it is possible to be transferred without any time machine on pair centuries back and to feel atmosphere of unpretentious XVIII century. You have guessed, about what there is a speech? Certainly, the Central market, and in an old fashion - the New market.
From the moment of promotion of Kishinev from an ordinary place straight in numbers of provincial cities of empire city rapid development has begun. In those days Kishinev lasted a dirty blot along the river the Bull, from the Orgeevsky path to present Muncheshtsky street. Lopsided houses, small streets which could be confused with ditches, flights of the hungry dogs, striving to bite all passers - here characteristic city boundaries of the beginning of XVIII century. But to province capital arrived more and more the population. Новоприбывшие workmen, handicraftsmen and petty bourgeoises at first, on the taken roots habit, occupied areas near a fountain - a public source of water. Soon the narrowness has placed all in the places, and city streets have promoted uphill a hill. The new part of a city which soon and became main began to be built up.
With an increase in population trade developed also. Supermarkets then was not and in помине, however, and the industry only arose. The working people could sell production or in own benches - destiny of more well-founded, or on a market.
For that moment in a city there was a unique market - Ilinsky which settled down on a place of present Economic academy and hotel "Dawn". It any more did not cope with inflow wishing to sell, buy or exchange the goods. The narrowness was such, that the market directly fell out for the borders. It was necessary to undertake something, and in 1825 the city authorities have taken away city suburb under creation of a new market. The platform was quickly rendered habitable by variegated dealers, and here the name and remains - the New Market. In the Ilinsky market still traded in food products, and the New Market became a platform for sale of all of the rest. Smiths, hardware affairs of the master, carpenters, ragmen, weavers and кожевники have received quite successful place for fulfilment of the simple transactions. Here, on the New Market, peasants resulted cattle, fodder on sale, brought a bird and the manufactured sheepskin.
Probably, the first Kishinev advertising here has arisen - you can hear till now its echoes in sharp shouts торговок: «the Poison! A poison!», «socks, trousers!», «buy apples!». Should be, their ancestors also shouted the torn voices, trying to sell the goods and faster to come back home, carefully storing the obtained money somewhere is deep in the bosom.
The city suburb became for a long time its centre, the market stood and costs on a former place. And, probably, will pass as early as hundred years, and this quarter will change nothing: voices of fussy crowd will shout something still, involving buyers.
