One of numerous Bałuty courtyards pictured in wintertime. The roofs of wooden houses are covered with a thick layer of snow, and large icesicles hang from their eaves. In the courtyard, next to a wooden shed, we can see a large piece of equipment—possibly a thresher. Some distance back, a man in work clothes stands on a recently-shoveled pathway. Along the sides of homes stand tall banks of cleared snow.
