Baku is the capital and largest city of Azerbaijan, as well as the largest city of the Caucasus region. Founding of Baku dates back to 1st century CE.
Photos of Baku's lanterns and one in Ganja (Photo 10/10) were taken in October 1975 and kept on slides. When several years ago we started scanning slides, we found that many of them have deteriorated, some even ruined, so quality of the pictures is not very good.
When it was possible, we checked the locations with Google Street View and put information in the photo caption about present conditions or existence of the lantern. A lantern is marked with (?) if we could not confirm its existence or conditions. If there is no note, it means that the lantern exists and has not changed.
